Short Bio

Carlo Alberto Boano is an assistant professor (tenure-track) at the Institute of Technical Informatics at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz), Austria. He received a doctoral degree under the auspices of the President of the Austrian Republic from TU Graz in 2016, with a thesis on "dependable wireless sensor networks" completed under the supervision of Kay Römer.
Before joining TU Graz, Carlo Alberto Boano was researcher at the University of Lübeck, Germany (2009-2013) and at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science, Sweden (2008-2009). During his post-doctoral time at TU Graz, he has spent several weeks as a visiting researcher in in Thiemo Voigt's group at Uppsala University, Sweden (2017), in Mun Choon Chan's group at the National University of Singapore, Singapore (2019), and in Yuan He's group at Tsinghua University, China (2019).
Carlo Alberto's research interests encompass the design of dependable networked embedded systems, with emphasis on the efficiency and reliability of low-power wireless communications, as well as on the robustness of networking protocols against environmental influences. Within this area, he has published over 50 peer-reviewed contributions -- including papers at prestigious venues ranked CORE A/A*, such as ACM SenSys, IPSN, NDSS, EWSN, ICDCS, IC3N, RTSS -- and received several awards.
Carlo Alberto Boano is also actively involved in the IoT Benchmarking initiative and co-organizes since 2016 the EWSN Dependability Competition quantitatively comparing the performance of IoT protocols in harsh RF environments.
