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). He is currently Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Bari. He obtained the National Scientific Qualification (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale) as Associate Professor in April 2017 in the research field Automatica (09/G1). 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. Since 2017 he serves as Associate Editor for Internet Technology Letters (Wiley).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. He has been visiting scholar at the Laboratory of Information, Networking and Communication Sciences (LINCS) working with the equipe led by Prof. Dario Rossi. He has been post-doc at Telecom SudParis in 2015 working in the RST equipe led by Prof. Hervé Debar.
