A Book on DATAFLOW for SUPERCOMPUTING...
01 February 2017: the first own-manufactured AXIOM-board is up and running... and the chip is cold! It convoys some dataflow execution model too and the flexibility that we wanted for Cyber-Phisical Systems.
I'm currently (2014+) the Coordinator of an EU-funded 3-year project on Smart Cyber-Physical Systems: AXIOM.
I've been (2009-2014) the Coordinator of an EU-funded 4.25-year project on Many-Cores: TERAFLUX.
My main Research Area is COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE with emphasis on Multiprocessor/Multicore issues (processor, coherence, programmability, energy efficiency).
I'm an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering ("SSD ING-INF/05" in Italy) since October 1st, 2006.
I've been an Assistant Professor ("University Researcher" in Italy) of Computer Engineering ("SSD ING-INF/05" in Italy) since March 15th, 1999.
I've been a Post-Doc Research Associate at UAH
(University of Alabama in Huntsville)
working with prof. K. M. Kavi
and CRASH group
on Multithreaded Architectures.
I got my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering on March 16th, 1999
from University of Pisa, Italy.
Thesis title: . Advisor Prof.
C. A. Prete.
Evaluation of a Coherence Protocol
for the Elimination of Passive Sharing in Shared-Memory
Multithreaded Multiprocessors I graduated
in Electronic Engineering in July 1995;
Thesis title: Trace Driven Performance Evaluation of Multiprocessors.
I am a member of the following Professional Societies: Senior Member of the IEEE, IEEE Computer Society (S'89,M'00,SM'04),
and Lifetime Member ACM.
...and Interest Groups: IEEE TCCA,
and ACM SIGHPC.
Here is my
Short Biography, (also in Italian).

My GPG public key.
WHAT AM I DOING, NOW? (Last Updated:
2) I'm (always) SEEKING GOOD COLLABORATORS, Research Funds, Industrial Parternship to fuel
High Performance Computer Architecture Research Projects with particular emphasis on SCALABLE ARCHITECTURES and EMBEDDED SYSTEMS.
