Andrea Vitaletti earned a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from SAPIENZA University of Rome in 2002. During his Ph.D. and in the following years he visited some renowned international research centers such as ETHZ (CH) and AT&T Research Labs (USA). He is currently Assistant professor (Ricercatore) in networking and Algorithmic topics at (DIAG) Dipartimento di Ingegneria informatica automatica e gestionale Antonio Ruberti University of Rome "La Sapienza". He has (co-)authored more than 35 papers in journals and international conferences (h-index 14 in Google Scholar), mainly in the area of algorithms and protocols for wireless and sensor networks. His current research interests concern the design and the analysis of efficient algorithms and protocols for resource constrained networks (mainly distributed and localized algorithms) and their application to wireless sensor networks. He has been reviewer for several international conferences and journals and PC member of some international conferences. He has been involved in several EU projects as researcher and PI, the most recent are: AEOLUS, PERADA, SOFIA and FRONTS. He has been member of the Steering Board of ARTEMISIA from 2010 to 2013. From 2002 to 2005 he has been technical coordinator of the CINI lab in Rome. He has carried out applied industrial research on wireless and pervasive systems at NTT DATA labs (formely known as ETNOTEAM ltd) for 9 years. In 2002 e founded the SME WLAB and he is currently the CTO. In 2012 he founded WSENSE a spin-off of the Univerity of Rome "La Sapienza". The effectiveness of his applied research activity is witnessed by 2 patents and 4 patent applications and by some awards: Winner of media and communication category at Wonderland Contest 2000, Innovation Prize at Simagine 2002, Bronze Award at Simagine 2004 and Third place award in the Start Cup Roma 2006/2007 and winner of Italiacamp 2012. He leads e research group of 3 Ph.D students, 1 post Doc and 5 master students in the Wireless Sensor Networks lab at DIS. Since 2002 he teaches on network topics at SAPIENZA University of Rome and he has supervised more than 80 master thesis.
