I am an Ericsson Research employee at the Advanced Signaling Research Laboratory within the Nomadic Lab. There I work as research scientist in the Service Layer Technology area, mainly involved in standardization and prototyping issues related to IP Multimedia architectures (IMS), VoIP and Web2.0 issues.
During the last 10 years I have got my PhD in networking focused on the Internet transport protocols and I've been working in R&D in various positions, ranging from implementation and specification to various management positions.
Currently I am working on Communication Service Architecture(s), ranging from classical telecom services, IMS and Web2.0 social network services using Ajax and Widget technologies.
I am also active in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which designs and maintains the core protocols of Internet, where I am mainly involved in the SIP related working groups and I am author or co-author of RFC 5279, 5509, 5547, 6202, 6446 and several Internet-Drafts.
I am an italian engineer from Nocera Inferiore, a town closed to Salerno, the Amalfi coast and the metropolitan city of Napoli. Since the 2005 I moved to Helsinki (Finland) to join the Nomadiclab.
I joined Ericsson, the Swedish telephone mobile network manufacturer, in 2000 to work in Italy for a research laboratory known as CoRiTeL (Consorzio Ricerche sulle Telecomunicazioni), starting to be involved in SIP, VoIP, and 3G research areas. I was also involved in several Ericsson internal projects.
Previously, from 1999 to 2000 I worked in SchlumbergerSema, site of Naples (Italy), in Telecommunication Area as developper and system integrator of GSM billing and prepaid services.
I received my master degree in Computer Science Engineering from the Napoli University "Federico II" defending a thesis on artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic.
Degree thesis: "Optimal algorithms and management of the uncertainties to acknowledgement of a picture".
In 2006 I received my PhD in networking from Napoli University "Federico II".
PhD thesis: "Protocols and architecture issues in service design for the next generation of mobile communication".
In April 2009 I have been appointed as IEEE Senior Member.
My main research interests are:
- Internet of Things (IoT)
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)
SIP & Web Services
Web Communication, Web 2.0 & Social Networking
Instant Messaging and Presence (SIMPLE, XMPP, and interworking between them)
Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
