Mattia Nicolella

P.hD Student in Computer Science at Boston University

I’m a PhD student from Italy. My current advisor is Prof. Renato Mancuso. My research is about real-time and embedded systems. I like to test my skills, especially when working in a team. I’m a curious person and a thinker, I like to ”hack” things to make them work better or to understand how they work. My favorite hobbies are photography, hiking, camping and reading.
