Born in Copertino (LE) on March 29th, 1985, Luigi attended the maxi-experimental ministerial program "Brocca" at the Classical Lyceum “G.Palmieri” in Lecce, from 1998 to 2003. He then studied Management and Production Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano, where he received his B.Sc. in 2006, with a thesis on the "Key Performance Indicators in the Operator’s Perspective". The thesis work aimed at identifying the state of art in performance monitoring models for enterprises’ personnel and professionals and verifying their diffusion through an empirical research, conducted on leading firms of the most representative industry sectors.
He was then enrolled in the graduate program of Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Milano and received his M.Sc. in 2010, with a dissertation on “A Power-efficient Framework and Methodology to Configure Resource-constrained Wireless Sensor Networks”. The thesis research mainly focused on the functional and non-functional optimization of software allocation in extremely resource-constrained and pervasive computing environments. The work brought about some original contributions in the field and has been object of international publications.
After his graduate studies, he has been an Associate Consultant in the Financial Services Office of Ernst & Young, where he served as strategic and operational Information Technology Risk specialist, until he joined the Ph.D. program in Information Technology at Politecnico di Milano, in September 2011.
Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the Department of Electronics and Information of Politecnico di Milano.
His main research interests concern the modeling and optimization of power consumption in embedded and dedicated architectures, particularly Wireless Sensor Networks, with special focus on code and software analysis, integrated with formal abstractions of hardware, radio and low-level layers.
