Massimo Gaggero received his B.Sc. in Electronic Engineering in 2006 from the University of Cagliari, Italy, with a thesis on the use of the FPGA accelerators of the Cray supercomputer XD1 for the parallelization of digital filtering algorithms. In 2000 he started working at CRS4 dealing with networks, systems and distributed computing. In 2007, as Expert Software Engineer of the Advanced Computing group, he deals with distributed deployment systems on a geographical scale of virtual computing clusters. In 2008 he participated in the Research Assistantship Program at the NURC, NATO Undersea Research Center, where he carried out analysis and design of distributed sensors for underwater acoustic networks and Delay-Tolerant / Disruption-Tollerant architectures for maritime applications. He is currently Senior Technologist at the Data-intensive Computing Program where he deals with telemetry of industrial processes, clinical devices, IoT and applications for Smart Cities.
