Short CV

Andrea Morichetta joined the Distributed Systems Group of the Institute of Information Systems Engineering in January 2020 as a University assistant.

He received his Doctoral degree in Electrical, Electronics, and Communications Engineering in January 2020, in Politecnico di Torino in the Telecommunication Network Group. He worked under the supervision of Prof. Marco Mellia, with a grant fully funded by the Big-DAMA project. From 2017 to 2020, he collaborated with the SmartData@PoliTO center for data science and big data. In 2017 he visited, for a summer internship, Cisco in San Jose, CA. From January 2019 to July 2019, he was a visiting student at AIT, Vienna, Austria.

His research focuses on the intersection of intelligence and systems, combining data analysis and machine learning to distributed systems design. The work pays particular attention to unsupervised methodologies, emphasizing security and parallelization.
