Bio

My name is Mattia Antonini. I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Trento (Italy) and member of the OpenIoT research group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler / CREATE-NET.

I was born on 24th August 1992 in Reggio Emilia, a mid-size city in the middle of Pianura Padana.

I took my High School Diploma (100/100) in Electronics and Telecommunications at I.I.S.S. Agostino Berenini in 2011. I developed a cartesian plotter as final project (video).

I chose to continue my education at Università degli Studi di Parma. I obtained a BSc degree (110/110 cum laude) in Information Engineering (curricula Telecommunications) in October 2014 discussing a Thesis with title Lightweight IP multicast-based service discovery in multihop
Internet of Things communication networks (in Italian). In my thesis, I presented a lightweight forwarding protocol for multicast packets in Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs) called Lightweight Multicast Forwarding Protocol (LMFP). It has been also described in a conference paper and it was awarded as Best Conference Paper in the Symposium on RFID Technologies and Internet of Things, IEEE
22nd International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks (SoftCOM 2014), Split
(Croatia), 17-19 September, 2014.

Next, I continued with a MSc in Communication Engineering. I obtained the MSc degree (110/110 summa cum laude) in March 2017. I developed my thesis, entitled Interoperability for the Internet of Things: Integration of an Open Source Framework (in English), during an internship at FBK/Create-NET (Trento, TN). I had the possibility to develop a module for the AGILE Gateway Project and for the RIOT-OS operating system. All the code is available on GitHub. Moreover, I presented an overview on Interoperability Frameworks for RIOT-OS during the first RIOT Summit, a face-to-face meeting among RIOT-OS developers, held in Berlin on 15-16 July 2016.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Trento (Italy) and member of the OpenIoT research group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler / CREATE-NET. My reserch topics cover the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning techniques applied to edge devices or directly to deployed devices.
