Claudio is a postdoctoral researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain. He joined the Wireless Networking Group in December 2016 after having obtained his Ph.D. degree at the University of Luxembourg in November 2016. His PhD Thesis contributed to the ECO-CLOUD project with a focus on energy efficient communications in cloud, mobile cloud and fog computing. He received the Bachelor Degree in Ingegneria Telematica in 2010 and the Master Degree in Computer and Communication Networks Engineering in 2012 both from Politecnico di Torino. Claudio also holds the 2016 SmartICT Certificate on standardization for business innovation from the joint program of University of Luxembourg and ILNAS, the National Standardization Agency. Claudio was a Visiting Ph.D. Student at Clarkson University, NY, USA, where has worked on mobile crowdsensing.

Claudio has been awarded with two Spanish Juan de la Cierva grants (Formación 2017 and Incorporación 2019) and the Best Paper Awards in IEEE Cloudnet 2016, in ACM WiNTECH 2018 and IEEE GLOBECOM 2019. He is member of IEEE and ACM, served as Publication and Web Chair at IEEE CloudNet 2014, Publicity Chair at ACM/IEEE ANCS 2018, leading Workshop Co-Chair at MoCS 2019, TPC Co-Chair at IEEE CAMAD 2019 and Registration Chair at IEEE ICNP 2020. Claudio is member of the Editorial Board team of IEEE Networking Letters. His primary research interests include multi-access edge/fog computing, mobile crowdsensing and learning-driven network optimization.
