Massimo received the Laurea degree in Computer Engineering (Magna cum Laude) from the University of Pisa (Italy) and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering (with Doctor Europaeus mention) from IMT Lucca Institute for Advanced Studies (Italy) in 2005 and 2009, respectively.
His research background is on computational and artificial intelligence techniques, such as metaheuristics for global optimization and fuzzy logic. During his Ph.D. degree, his research interests moved towards power-efficient engineering and application designs for pervasive systems and devices. From October 2008 to March 2010, he worked as a research engineer at INRIA-Saclay (France). Then, he joined the Signal Processing in Communications group at the University of Vigo (Spain) as a post-doctoral researcher. Upon his return to Italy (October 2012), he worked as a senior researcher at CREATE-NET, within the “Smart Internet of Things (RIoT)” research unit, mainly in the field of Internet of Things devices and resources virtualization.
Starting from May 2015, he is an associate professor at the eCampus University (Italy), while recently he also joined back FBK CREATE-NET to coordinate the research activities of the OpenIoT unit.
His current research interests include computational intelligence and soft computing techniques, the Internet of Things paradigm and power-aware engineering designs and solutions for constrained and embedded devices.
Regarding his most recent editorial activity, he is a member of the editorial board of the Applied Soft Computing journal and the managing editor of the IEEE IoT newsletters.
