He took part in the activities of many national and European projects (e.g. H2020 ASTRID, GUARD, ARCADIA and INPUT, FP7 IP ECONET, PRIN EFFICIENT, FIRB GreenNet, and FI-Core) and he is an active reviewer for many different international journals and conferences (IEEE and ACM).
He has co-authored several papers in international conference proceedings. In 2010, he won the best paper award at the 3rd International Workshop on GreenCom 2010 co-located with the IEEE GLOBECOM. In 2011 he was a Visiting Ph.D. Scholar at PSU, Portland, OR, USA under the supervisor of Prof. Suresh Singh as an active member of the FINE2 Italy USA collaboration project.
He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Green Networking from the UniGe (Italy) in 2005, 2007 and 2013, respectively. Alex’s research is on networking (energy-aware, performance optimization, and virtualization), software routers, NFV and SDN (OpenFlow), container-orchestration system for automating computer application deployment, scaling, and management (Kubernetes) and cloud computing platforms (Openstack).
Finally, he is involved in collaboration with many industries, such as TIM, BroadcomNokia, Ericsson, Huawei, etc., and industrial fora, like GeSI.
