Dynamic Power Management at Operating System level.
I'm currently a Post-Doc at DEI - Politecnico di Milano.
I earned my PhD degree at Politecnico di Milano in 2009 under Professor William Fornaciari, working in tight collaboration with AST, the R&D division of STMicroelectronics, in the group of Diego Melpignano.
Prior to that I earned my M.S. thesis degree at the same University in 2005 and the high school degree in 1999 from the Istituto Tecnico Scientifico “E. Mattei”.
My research interests are in the area of embedded systems, focusing especially on resource and power management. I'm interested in understanding current and future application trends and characteristics to help develop efficient embedded platforms in light of upcoming many-cores architecture challenges like resource management, task scheduling and aggressive power management, which are predominantly issues at the Operating System level.
Lately, I've become keen in applying my background on dynamic power management in the Linux kernel, targeting real platforms for mobile multimedia embedded systems, to address these optimization challenges by specifically taking a hardware-software co-design approach.
Because of my research experience and tight collaboration with companies like STMicroelectronics, I've gained a hands-on view on the importance and practical aspects of power optimization in mobile computing platforms like smartphones, which is the domain I'm focusing upon.
