Dr. Roberto Riggio is currently Senior Researcher staff member in the Future Networks team at CREATE-NET, Italy. He received a PhD in Communications Engineering from University of Trento, Italy, in 2008. His research interests include performance isolation in multi-tenants data-centers; software defined mobile networking and programmable 5G networks. Dr. Riggio has co-authored more than 50 papers in internationally refereed journals and conferences. He serves on the TPC of leading conferences in the networking field, including, e.g., IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE IM, IEEE NOMS. He is co-inventor of two patents on network virtualization and distributed network monitoring.
He is currently involved in the following projects:
- Low Cost/Hybrid communication architectures for Emergency Broadband (http://www.absolute-project.eu)
- Recursive Internet Architectures (http://ict-pristine.eu/)
- Programmable Radio Access Networks (http://empower.create-net.org/)
- Energy monitoring and management of networking devices (http://www.energino-project.org/)
His research interested include:
- Programmable 5G networks
- Software defined mobile networking
- Performance isolation in multi-tenants data-centers
There are a number of openings for Master/Bachelor Theses in the broad domain of Software Defined Mobile Networks. Some examples are:
- Interference modeling in WiFi/LTE networks
- Device-to-Device Communication
- Virtual Network Function Orchestration in WiFi Networks
- Light datacenters for mobile ran (Fog-RAN)
All theses require good knowledge of computer networks and good programming skills (typically C/Python) and the capability to work independently and understand that your supervisor will show you a direction but will not give you turn-by-turn instructions. If you think you match those requirements feel free to drop me an email.
