Massimo's main research interest is the design and analysis of transport (mainly optical) networks, with a special focus on protection strategies and control plane issues. He has worked in the field of algorithms and mathematical optimization for network planning, Protection, Grooming and Availability Analysis. A relevant area of his recent reserch deals with the "so-called" SLA-aware network design, a new area of cross-layer design in which service-level specifications are directly involved in the design phase.
