I was born in 1979 in Manerbio (BS), Italy. I received my MSc degree ("Laurea V.O.") in Electronic Engineering and my PhD in Information Engineering respectively in 2003 and 2007 from the University of Brescia, Italy. From March 2007 to April 2008 I was a postdoc in the Department of Electronics for Automation at the University of Brescia. From May 2008 to December 2018, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Information Engineering, where I am currently an associate professor.
I am a member of the IEEE Information Theory Society. I am the recipient of the 2014 IEEE Information Theory Society Paper Award.
