Short Curriculum

Luca De Cicco has graduated in Computer Science Engineering in 2003 with honors. He received the PhD in Information Engineering in July 2008 from Politecnico di Bari (advisor Prof. Saverio Mascolo) defending his thesis entitled: "Modeling, design and implementation issues in Multimedia Congestion Control Algorithms". He is currently research assistant at Politecnico di Bari working on the research theme "Multimedia content distribution over the Internet by using cloud computing infrastructures" . His main interests range from modeling and design of congestion control algorithms for multimedia transport, to adaptive live video streaming, performance evaluation of congestion control algorithms, and future internet paradigms. During the third year of his PhD program he covered a visiting scholar position at ECE Department at University of New Mexico (Albuquerque, NM, USA) collaborating in the FIND (Future INternet Design) project under the supervision of Prof. Chaouki Abdallah. Moreover in 2007 and 2012 he has been a visiting scholar at L2S (Laboratoire des signaux et systèmes) École Supérieure d'Électricité (Supelec), Gif-sur-Yvette (Paris), France under the supervision of Prof. Silviu Niculescu.
