Biography and resume

He was born on April 14, 1979.
He received his Master of Science in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino in 2003.
He received his Ph.D. in Computer and Systems Engineerign from Politecnico di Torino in 2007.
From April 2007 to April 2008 he was a post-doc scholarship at the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica of Politecnico di Torino on the topic of the design of safety-critical systems.
From April 2008 to April 2010 he was awarded a post-doc fellowship for young researcher at the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica of Politecnico di Torino on the Information and Comunication Technologies (ICT) area.
His main research interests are focused on the design automation of digital systems, with special emphasis on the safety-critical systems, the automatic synthesis, mapping, place and route of digital systems.
His research activities span on several fields including algorithms, physics modeling of radiation environment and bioinformatics.
He coauthored more than 65 papers on book chapters, journal papers and papers in the proceedings of international conferences.
He authored one book on the design of fault tolerant electronic systems in safety-critical applications.
He has served as reviewer for a number of journal and conferences of the IEEE, and served as member of Technical Program Committee of many international IEEE conferences.
He has taught several courses on various subjects of the Computer Science. Scientific and Professional Activities
