Short CV

He received the Master degree in Electronic Engineering in May 2009 and the Ph.D. in “Space Systems and Technologies” in June 2013 at University of Rome Tor Vergata. At present, he is postdoctoral fellow at University of Rome Tor Vergata (dept. of Electronic Engineering).
He works on hardware implementation of high-speed systems for Digital Signals Processing, Machine Learning, Array of Wireless Sensor Networks and systems for data analisys of Acoustic Emission (AE) Sensors (based on ultrasonic waves). The main skills are about digital systems implementation on FPGA devices using VHDL and the microcontrollers/microprocessors programming using C/C++ language. He focuses his work also on ultra-low power electronic systems.
Since 2012 he is adjunct professor of the course “Encoding and compression of audio signals” for the master’s degree in Sound Engineering at the University of Rome Tor Vergata and, since 2013, he’s tutor of the courses “Digital Electronics” for the degree in Engineering Sciences, “Progetto di Circuiti e Sistemi VLSI” and “Elettronica Digitale” for the degree in Electronics Engineering at the University of Rome Tor Vergata.
