I have received, in 2014, a Ph.D. in Computer and Communication Engineering from the Department of Electrical, Electronic, and Computer Engineering at the University of Catania, Italy. There I worked as a research assistant and adjunct professor of Computer Architectures for the Electronic Engineering course until October 2019.

From November 2019 to October 2020, I was a research fellow within the Fellows-in-Residence program at the CY Advanced Studies, CY Cergy Paris University (formerly known as the University of Cergy-Pontoise) and at the ETIS Lab, a joint research laboratory of CNRS (UMR 8051), ENSEA, and CY Cergy Paris University, in France.

From November 2020 to August 2021, I was a research assistant at the STMLab, Department of Computer Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, Kore University of Enna, Italy.

Since September 2021, I am a research fellow at the Engineering Department, Niccolò Cusano University, Rome, Italy.

My research mainly focuses on Cyber-Physical systems and Network-on-Chip based architectures with particular reference to low-power design and applications. In this regard, I contributed to a Network-on-Chip cycle-accurate simulator, namely, Noxim. At the current date, Noxim has been employed as an experimental platform, or as a part of an experimental infrastructure, in more than 500 scientific papers published in refereed international conferences and journals.
