I received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. During 2007, I was a visiting scholar at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), CA, and since 2009, I have been a frequent visitor to the UCSD, working with Prof. Pamela Cosman and Prof. Laurence Milstein on joint source and channel coding for wireless communication systems.

Between 2009 and 2011, I worked at the Tele-Robotics and Application (TERA) department at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), investigating wireless sensor networks for robotics applications. 

In 2012, I was a Post-doctoral fellow in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the UCSD. Between 2013 and  2016, I was a Post-doctoral fellow in the Signal Processing Laboratory (LTS4) led by Prof. Pascal Frossard at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Switzerland. 

In 2016, I have been appointed as Lecturer in the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Institute of University College London (UCL).
