My research work focus on the design, prototype and evaluation of self-management algorithms for Web services and Cloud systems. In particular, my work aims on the design of optimization algorithms for the maximization of Quality of Service of composed Web services and for the resource management of autonomic infrastructures. Recently, I’m focusing on Model Driven Design and management of Cloud based (see the MODAClouds project) and data intensive applications (see the DICE and EUBRA-BIGSEA projects). I developed also energy efficiency solutions for the management of virtualized infrastructures (GAME-IT project). During my Ph.D. studies I investigated the problem of cost oriented design and capacity planning of distributed IT architectures.
