About Me

Francesco Fraternali

I am a 2nd year Ph.D student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. I am a member of Microelectronic Embedded Systems Laboratory (MESL) supervised by Prof. Rajesh Gupta.

I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering from the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering at University of Bologna in 2009 and 2012 respectively.

My current research is in the area of "Embedded Systems" with a specific focus on "Energy Harvesting for Wireless Sensor Network" and "Internet of Things".
