Short Bio:

Dr. Cristiano Tapparello received the B.Sc. and the M.Sc. Degree (with honors) in Computer Engineering from University of Padova (Italy) in 2005 and 2008, respectively. He received the Ph.D. in Information Engineering from the same university in 2012. In 2011 he visited the Center for Wireless Communication and Signal Processing Research at New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, where he performed research on the design of networking protocols for energy-harvesting wireless networks under the supervision of Prof. Osvaldo Simeone. From January 2012 to October 2013, he has been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the SIGNET group, Department of Information Engineering (DEI) at University of Padova. From October 2013 to June 2016, he has been a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Wireless Communications and Networking Group (WCNG) in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY. He is currently a Research Associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester.

Research Interests:

My research interests broadly reside in the area of wireless ad hoc and sensor networks and mobile cloud computing, with a particular emphasis on the stochastic modeling and optimization of such dynamic systems. Moreover, I recently developed a particular interest in the design of novel techniques to facilitate the development and diffusion of smart and connected healthcare solutions. Learn More.
