Giuseppe Aceto

Short resume

I have received in 2014 my PhD degree in Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering at the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica e delle Tecnologie dell'Informazione of the Università di Napoli Federico II, defending a thesis titled Monitoring Internet Censorship: the case of UBICA [PDF] [bibtex], the thesis supervisor being Prof. Giorgio Ventre and co-supervisor Prof. Antonio Pescapè.
I have received from the same institution my MS degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 2008, defending a thesis about a unified platform for available bandwidth estimation in heterogeneous IP networks, the thesis supervisor being Prof. Antonio Pescapè and co-supervisor Dr. Walter de Donato.
I also work as researcher for the same Department, where I am member of the Traffic research group, led by Prof. Antonio Pescapè, and the COMICS, a research group on networking headed by Prof. Giorgio Ventre; within these groups I closely cooperate with Dr. Alessio Botta, Dr. Walter de Donato, Dr. Valerio Persico and Dr. Pietro Marchetta.

My research interests are focused on networking, more specifically on network measurements, traffic analysis, and Internet Censorship.
