teaching
Biography I am an Assistant Professor in the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione of the University of Pisa. I received the Telecommunications Engineer degree (cum laude) and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. Since 2005 I have been with the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione of the University of Pisa. In 2004, I was a visiting Ph.D. student at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. During the period June 2007 - 2008, I was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton. During the period June 2010 - Sept. 2010, I was selected for a research assistantship through the DAAD STIBET funding at the Technische Universitat Munchen. I was the co-recipient of the Best Paper Award at the 2013 International Conference on Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC13) and the recipient of the FP7 Marie Curie International European Fellowships for career development (IEF) 2013 Dense4Green ''Dense deployments for green cellular networks''. 
Research interests  My expertise and general interests span the areas of communications and signal processing, estimation and detection theory. Current research topics focus on dense deployments for green cellular networks, optimization of MIMO relay networks and development of game-theoretic solutions for energy-efficient interference mitigation in heterogenous networks.
