Roberto Trunfio

Biography

Currently I am research fellow at (UNICAL), Italy.

I'm also technical advisor for Logistics and Computer Science, with a focus on system management and data analysis.

From March 2007 to February 2009 I have been Senior Engineer in a research & development project at the NEC Italia Center for High-Performance Computing and Computational Engineering (CESIC).

On March 2009 I received a Ph.D. in Operations Research from DEIS, University of Calabria, Italy.

I received a Laurea Specialistica degree (M.Sc.) in Management Engineering (cum laude) in September 2005 from the same university. Then, I have passed the professional qualification examination (i.e. "Esame di Stato") from both Computer Science Engineer and Industrial Engineer.

Interests
