Biography

Leonardo Bonati received his B.S. in Information Engineering and his M.S. in Telecommunication Engineering from University of Padova, Italy in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering at Northeastern University under the supervision of Professors Stefano Basagni and Tommaso Melodia. His research interests focus on 5G cellular networks, network slicing, software-defined networking for wireless networks, and unmanned aerial vehicles networks.
