Ph.D. Luca Santinelli
He graduated in Electronic Engineering (specialization in Computer Science) at the Polytechnic University of Marche in 2003.
From 2003 to 2007 he worked for the MTS Group (now ARISTON Thermo) as software developer in the R&D department. He specialized on microcontroller and control systems.
In 2010 he completed the Ph.D. in Computer Science (curriculum in Innovative Technologies of Info. & Com. Eng. and Robotics) at the Scuola Superiore SantAnna working on real-time systems at the RETIS Laboratory. During his Ph.D. thesis, in 2008-2009 he was a visiting student at the ETH, Zurich working on real-time calculus and real-time scheduling within the TIK Laboratory.
His main research interests include real-time operating systems, schedulability and scheduling algorithms, energy aware scheduling, dynamic and adaptive resource reservation/allocation policies, probabilistic real-time modeling and analysis, real-time controls and artificial intelligence.
His activity at the ONERA involves the modeling and analysis of safety-critical real-time systems.

studied Electronic Engineer with specialization in Computer Science at Ancona, Polytechnic University of Marche.
Electronic + Computer Science it is a mixture between information technology and electronic engineering. After the first 2 years of general courses such as maths and physics, it starts to be specific. First a couple of years of electronic and information technology and then, last year of my studies, I chose entirely the software technology catalog with Computer Architecture, Operating Systems, Advanced Programming Languages and Artificial Intelligence exams, to be focused on software engineering.
Master Thesis: Analysis and Development of technique for the Fingerprint Matching.
The study focuses on developing a complete fingerprint recognition system: enrollment (fingerprint management) identification and recognition with Artificial Intelligence technique.
Interests: research and more
Research Interests: i) Real-Time: scheduling, resource reservation and bandwidth allocation, ii) Probabilistic Real-Time: safety-critical/mixed-criticalities and timing guarantees with probabilities, iii) Component-based design and object-oriented programming languages, iv) Network calculus and realtime calculus and their probabilistic/stochastic versions, v) Artificial Intelligence
Private Interests: Sports (volleyball, skiing, football, running, basketball, ...) reading, traveling, and computing
