Pietro Marchetta is a postdoc at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (DIETI) of the University of Napoli Federico II where he received his MS in 2011 and his PhD in Computer Engineer and Systems in 2014, under the guidance of Prof. Antonio Pescapè
. He is now a member of the research group called Traffic
, working in the area of computer network monitoring and part of COMICS
(COMputers for Interaction and CommunicationS), a research group on networking headed by Prof. Giorgio Ventre
His main research activities focus on methodologies and techniques for Internet measurements with a specific focus on Internet topology discovery and path tracing through innovative active probing techniques.
These activities have been conducted in the context of international collaborations with several research groups. From January to July 2010, he visited the IP Networking Lab at the University of Louvain-la-neuve (UCL), Belgium, working on the design and evaluation of novel topology discovery approaches based on IGMP, now part of the MERLIN
From September 2013 to Febraury 2014, he visited the Networked Systems Laboratory of the University of Southern California (USC) working with Prof. Ethan Katz-Bassett
on efficient Internet paths-related data storage strategies and innovative path measurement techniques.
In 2012, he was awarded the ACM Student Research Competition at SIGCOMM.
