Massimiliano got his
MasterDegree in Electronic Engineering in 1997 in
Italy (University ofTrieste), his Doctoral School Degree in
Communication Systems in 1998 in Switzerland (EPFL) and his PhD in
Mobile Communications in 2002 in France (Eurecom Institute - EPFL)..
He is currently working as Laboratory Manager of the Information and
Communication Technologies Laboratory (ICTL, in Sophia Antipolis,
south-east of France) and as Senior Research Engineer for HITACHI Europe.
His main applied research
topics concern Wireless Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
(MANETs), VehicularAd-hoc Networks (VANETs), Machine-to-Machine
Networks (M2M) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).
Max was born in
Gorizia (Italy) on December 31st, 1970 and I lived in
Gradisca d'Isonzo withhis parents until almost 1989. After graduating
from the "LiceoScientifico Duca degli Abruzzi" high school in Gorizia
he got hisMaster Degree in Electrical Engineering (specialization in
Telecommunications) in June 1997 from the
"UniversitÓ degli Studi
di Trieste", Italy.
From November 1996 to
April 1997, Max developed a Laurea Thesis (
"Analisys of a digital image
inthe multidimensional space of its features: application to the
segmentation of a video sequence") at the Signal
Processing Laboratory ( LTS) of the EPFL,
Switzerland, in collaboration with the Image Processing Laboratory ( IPL)
of the University of Trieste for the Esprit-Noblesse European project.
From September 1995 to
June 1996 he was an Erasmus (now
Socrates) student at " ",
Great Britain. University of Manchester
From October 1997 to
July1998 Max was a graduate student of
the Doctoral School inCommunication Systems at the
Systems Department of the EPFL (
LCM).A project on Distributed
Antennas in Wireless/Cellular Systems has been developed, " Distributed Antennas for
Cellular Wireless Systems".
From August 1998 toDecember
1998 he collaborated with
NE&T-Webtechna, an InternetService Provider in Trieste (Italy)
Network Configurator and Designer.
From January 1999 to May
2002 Massimiliano was a PhD Student at
Communications Department of Institute EURECOM (Sophia
Antipolis, France), working under Prof.
Dirk T.M. Slock on "Mobile reception for 3th generation
mobile systems", in the context of UMTS/W-CDMA standard development.
