I am a member of the High Performance Systems team at the IBM Research Lab in Dublin, Ireland. My work is mainly centered around large scale, parallel and distributed data management and processing systems. My research interests and activities relate to the design and optimization of the whole software stack supporting data-intensive workloads, from "bare-metal" or virtualized deployment infrastructures, to distributed middleware.
I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering (Distributed Systems) from the University of Bologna. I received cum-laude M.Sc. and B.Sc. diplomas in Computer Engineering from the same University in 2010 and 2008, respectively.
