I am currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), with focus on Systems and Control at MDU, and I work in the area of complex real-time embedded systems.
I was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria at the Politecnico di Milano. Before, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Automatic Control at the Lund University. I was also a member of Lund Center for Control of Complex Engineering Systems (LCCC).
I was a PhD Fellow in the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione at Politecnico di Milano and my main research interest were on model simplification techniques for continuous and discontinuous systems.
Keywords: Control Theory, Feedback Computing, Fog Computing, Cloud Computing, Real-time and embedded systems

My research topics include the application of control theory to the design and implementation of computing systems, especially in the context of real-time and cloud computing systems. In addition, I am also interested in modeling and control of interconnected systems in presence of uncertainty.
I am particularly interested in autonomic and self-adaptive systems, in different areas of computer science and software engineering.
