Employment history

2015/10/15—present
Associate professor (professore associato) at the Dipartimento di Informatica—Scienza e Ingegneria (DISI), Università di Bologna, Italy.
2009/11/01—2015/10/14
Assistant professor (ricercatore universitario) at the Dipartimento di Informatica—Scienza e Ingegneria (DISI), Università di Bologna, Italy.
My research interests include systems performance modeling and simulation, peer-to-peer systems, and high performance computing. I teach or have taught Algorithms and Data Structures, Parallel Programming, and Complex Systems.
2008/05/02—2009/10/31
Research Engineer at the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) Padova, Italy, working in the EU EGEE-3 (Enabling Grids for E-sciencE) project, JRA1 activity (Middleware Re-engineering).
I worked on the gLite Grid middleware; in particular, I co-developed the ICE (Interface to Cream Environment) component of the gLite Workload Management System, and helped support the BES (Basic Execution Service) and JSDL (Job Submission Description Language) specifications within the CREAM Computing Element. More informations can be found at http://grid.pd.infn.it/cream/. Some relevant publications: [AAG+10] [AAB+10] [AM09] [A+09].
2006/04/01—2006/05/31, 2006/06/12—2008/04/10
Research Engineer at the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) Padova, Italy, working in the OMII-Europe (Open Middleware Infrastructure Institute) project, JRA1 activity (Re-engineering of services).
My work was focused on the analysis, implementation and extension of the JSDL (Job Submission Description Language) and BES (Basic Execution Service) specifications within the CREAM computing element on the gLite software infrastructure. More informations on this activity can be found on the activity wiki page http://grid.pd.infn.it/omii/. Some relevant ublications: [R+09] [RMM+08] [AAB+07] [MMR+07]
2005/04/08—2006/03/31
Research Engineer at the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) Padova, working in the EU EGEE (Enabling Grid for E-sciencE) project, JRA1 Activity (Middleware Reengineering and Integration).
I worked on the development of a Computing Element (CE) service for the gLite Grid infrastructure. At INFN Padova we develope CREAM (Computing Resource Execution and Management), a Java application running inside an Axis container in the Tomcat application server. CREAM exposes a webservice-based interface allowing users to submit and manage computational jobs which will be executed on an underlying batch system.
Some relevant publications: [A+08] [A+08-2] [VM+06] [A+06]
2003/03—2005/04
Post-Doc researcher at the Dipartimento di Informatica, Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia, supported by the FIRB project Performance Evaluation of Complex Systems: Techniques, Methodologies and Tools.
My research areas included: development of methodologies and tools for complex systems modeling, in particular software systems; analytical and approximate solution techniques for Queuing Network models with blocking; development of general-purpose simulation tools and libraries to support the above activities.
Some relevant publications: [BMM06] [BM05] [BMM04] [MB04] [M04] [BDIM04]
2000/11—2003/10
PhD student in Computer Science at the Dipartimento di Informatica, Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia, Italy, under the supervision of prof. Simonetta Balsamo.
I worked on performance evaluation of software systems from UML specifications. In particular, I investigated the use of simulation as the performance model, and annotated UML Use Case, Activity and Deployment diagrams as the software specification model.
Some relevant publications: [BM03-3] [BM03-2] [BM03] [M04]
2001/09—2004/02
External collaborator, INFN Padova.
I developed a monitoring system for a large computing cluster of about 180 dual-processor machines which is used for processing of data from the BaBar experiment.
Some relevant publications: [M03] [MM03] [ACD+03].
1998/11/02—1999/01/25, 1999/11/29—2001/09/03
Research Assistant at the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nuclare (INFN), Padova, Italy.
I worked on the BaBar experiment, supported by an INFN studentship. I took part in the development of software for data transfer between the main experimental site at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (now SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory) and worldwide distributed regional computing centers.
Some relevant publications: [BA01] [BA02].

Software Developed

This section describes some of the software I have developed or co-developed.

Interval Tree Matching (ITM)
The Interval Tree Matching (ITM) algorithm is a new solution for the Data Distribution Management problem in parallel and distributed simulation. Given two sets of d-dimensional rectangular regions, ITM can identify all intersections among one region of the first set and one of the second set. ITM is a joint work with Gabriele D'Angelo and Marco Mandrioli and has been described in [MDM13]. The source code of ITM is available at pads.cs.unibo.it.
The Octave queueing package
The Octave queueing package is a software package for Queueing Networks and Markov chains analysis written in GNU Octave. This software (previously known as qnetworks toolbox) is described in [M10]; the latest version is available at Octave Forge.
ErlangTW
ErlangTW (Erlang Time Warp) is a parallel/distributed simulation middleware based on the Time Warp synchronization protocol. ErlangTW is entirely written in Erlang, a concurrent, functional programming language specifically targeted at building distributed systems. ErlangTW allows simulation models to be executed either on single-core, multicore and distributed computing architectures. ErlangTW is a joint work with Luca Toscano and Gabriele D'Angelo has been described in [TDM12] The source code of ErlangTW is available at pads.cs.unibo.it.
Go-Warp
Go-Warp is a simulator based on the Time Warp synchronization algorithm and implemented using the Go programming language. Go is a general purpose programming language announced by Google in the late 2009 and now developed as an Open Source project. The Go language has good support for concurrency and communication; many features introduced in Go seem to have a good potential but its usage in Parallel And Distributed Simulation (PADS) is still not fully explored. Go-Warp is a joint work with Pietro Ansaloni and Gabriele D'Angelo and has been described in [DFM12]. The source code of Go-Warp is available at pads.cs.unibo.it.
P2PCS
Cloud Computing has gained popularity in both research and industrial communities. Cloud users can acquire computing resources on a need basis, achieving on demand scalability; Cloud providers can maximize resource utilizations of datacenters, increasing their return on investments. While Cloud systems are usually hosted in large datacenters and are centrally managed, other types of Cloud architectures can be imagined. P2PCS is a prototype implementation of a fully decentralized, P2P Cloud. A P2P Cloud allows organizations or even individual to build a computing infrastructure out of existing resources, which can be easily allocated among different tasks. P2PCS is a joint work with Michele Tamburini and Ozalp Babaoglu and has been described in [BMT12].
LIBSVMCBE
LIBSVMCBE is an optimized version of LIBSVM for efficient training Support Vector Machines on the Cell Broadband Engine (CBE). LIBSVMCBE has been described in [M11].
Patch contributed to the gphoto project
I contributed a patch to the gphoto library for better supporting the Canon A40 digital camera. In particular, my patch improved the remote capture support capabilities of gphoto2 for this particular camera. My contribution has been included into the main development branch of gphoto2.
libcppsim and UML-PSI
During my PhD thesis I developed libcppsim and UML-Psi, libcppsim is a process-oriented simulation library written in C++; UML-Psi (the UML Performance SImulator) is a software package for simulation modeling of software architectures described as annotated UML diagrams. Both softwares, although no longer maintained, are still available as open source software under the GNU General Public License. These packages have been described in [M04] [MB04] [M04d].
perfmc
While I worked at INFN Padova for the BaBar collaboration I wrote perfmc, a mointoring system for compute farms. perfmc uses the Simple Network Management Procotol (SNMP) to query a large number of heterogeneous hosts (including other SNMP-capable appliances, such as routers, tape libraries and so on). perfmc has been used at INFN Padova for many years to monitor the BaBar reprocessing farm, which includes more than 300 CPUs. While never publicly released, this software has been described in [M03].
