Davide Zordan received the B.Sc. and the M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Padova (Italy) in 2007 and 2010, respectively. He is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Padova, under the supervision of Michele Rossi. His research interests include in network processing techniques for WSNs (including Compressive Sensing), stochastic modeling and optimization, protocol design and performance evaluation for wireless networks, energy efficient protocols for WSNs and energy harvesting techniques.
Davide is currently a visiting Ph.D. Student in the Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems Laboratory, Department of Electrical Engineering at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York (SUNY) under Professor Tommaso Melodia.
