My name is Andrea Sacco I was born in 1985 and I live in Prato, Italy. I have finished the Master of Science in Telecommunications Engineering at University of Florence (Italy), on July 14th achieving a "Summa cum Laude" mark (110 over 110 with honours), with a Master Thesis titled "Multimedia Distributed Surveillance for Underwater Sensor Networks applied to critical monitoring". My Master thesis work has been supervised by Prof. Romano Fantacci and Prof. Tommaso Pecorella, both from the University of Florence, and I've collaborated with Prof. Alvaro Suarez from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) during my Erasmus period (from 10/2009 to 3/2010). I already have a Bachelor of Science in Information Engineering (curriculum Telematics) achieved in Dec. 2007 with a mark of 107 over 110. I've a personal website at http://sockethq.altervista.org where you can find my thesis works.
I've started using ns-3 in November '09 for a research project with Underwater Wireless Networks related to my master thesis work. I've found and solved a bug into the ns-3 UAN module . I try to be as much active as possible into the ns-3 mailing lists. My research in the field of underwater wireless networks began in September '09 and, during this period I think to have accumulated a good knowledge of the field.
Work and Research
My work and research activities spaces from sensors networks to web applications to passive sensors data. My bachelor thesis project was presented during the ICTTA'08 international conference held in Damascus, Syria from 7 to 11 April 2008, and published on IEEE .
Besides the interests in web evolution, optoelectronics, networking and underwater sensors, I'm interested in surf (my real passion), snowboarding, rugby, and music (singing and playing guitar).
