MIT and ITA I am a PhD candidate at MIT in the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems (LIDS) advised by Prof. Eytan Modiano. My research is on Communication Networks, particularly in the development of network control algorithms to improve the Quality of Service in wireless networks.

Before the PhD, I received two SM degrees:

  • Communication Networks from MIT. Adviser: Prof. Eytan Modiano, USA, 2016;
  • Telecommunications from ITA. Adviser: Prof. Alessandro Anzaloni, Brazil, 2013.

Besides solving challenging problems in Communication Networks, I have a keen interest in teaching.
