Danilo Ardagna is an associate professor at Politecnico di Milano. He received both his Master degree in Computer Science Engineering and PhD in Computer Science from Politecnico di Milano. He was also visiting researcher at IBW TJ Watson Research Center (USA) and Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (Spain).
Danilo is a regular member of the program committee of important conferences related to cloud computing, big data, performance evaluation, service-oriented computing, and web-based systems. He is currently a member of the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, of the Springer BioMed Big Data Analytics journal, of the International Journal of Cloud-Computing and Super-Computing. He served as guest co-editor ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review, and Springer Computing.
He co-authored more than 100 papers. Some of his papers appeared on prestigious journals and magazines like IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, IEEE Software, and ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems.
He was the recipient of an IBM Faculty award (2010), co-recipient of an IBM SUR grant (2016), and several awards from Microsoft and Amazon for the experimentation of cloud systems.
Danilo’s research interests touch different aspects of performance modelling and resource management of cloud systems. He developed several solutions for web services compositions, green and autonomic computing, optimization of virtualized and cloud-based systems and resource management of big data and artificial intelligence applications.
This research has been funded by participating to diverse national and international projects. Moreover, Danilo has been heading the participation of Politecnico di Milano in DICE, EUBRA-BIGSEA, and ATMOSPHERE EU-funded projects.
