Our paper “Delay and Peak-Age Violation Probability in Short-Packet Transmissions,” will be presented at the Int. Symp. Inf. Theory (ISIT) in Vail, Colorado.


Our paper "Fundamental Limits of Low-Density Spreading NOMA" has been accepted in the Trans. Wireless Commun. Information-theoretic limits on the spectral efficiency of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) are derived and potential impact on 5G is discussed.


Our paper “Pilot-assisted short-packet transmission over multi-antenna fading channels: A 5G case study” has been presented in Princeton, NJ, at the Conf. Inf. Sciences and Systems (CISS).

Short bio

I will join Ericsson Research in Stockholm next Fall.

Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Chalmers University of Techonology, Gothenburg, Sweden, where I work with Giuseppe Durisi on several topics in information theory.

Prior to moving back to Europe, I held an SUTD-MIT Postdoctoral Fellowship, and I spent one year at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore, and one year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MA, USA, where I worked with Tony Q. S. Quek and Moe Z. Win on topics in wireless communications and networks.

Previously, I earned a double Ph.D. degree jointly at Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy, and CentraleSupélec (Université Paris-Saclay), France. The topic of my doctorate revolved around the impact of sparsity in communications.

I am interested in information theory and more broadly in applied mathematics, with a particular emphasis on several topics in discrete probability and multivariate statistics. Currently, most of my research is applied to wireless communications.
