Dr. Stefano Vissicchio

I received the Master degree in computer science from the Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy, in 2008, and the PhD degree from the same university in 2012. After a short period as research fellow at Consortium GARR, I have been a post-doc at the University of Louvain (UCL), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. I am now a postdoctoral researcher of the Belgian fund for scientific research (F.R.S.-FNRS), affiliated with UCL. My research interests span network management, routing, measurements and SDN.
