Lecturer Leonardo Badia

Schedule and Abstract

Wednesday, 20.02.2019, room 55
14:00-15:45: "Game theory for management of distributed system"
16:15-17:45: "The concept of Nash equilibrium applied to system management"


Thursday, 21.02.2019

Computing Center
14:00-15:45: "Network security and jamming studied through game theory"

Classroom 61
16:15-17:00: "Meet the University of Padova: 8 centuries of academic history"


The first presentation is about the University of Padova.

The technical talks in Tuesday and Wednesday contains are a mini-course of game theory. This is open to undergraduate and graduate students, as the concepts are basic.

On Thursday, a more applied talk about applications of game theory to research in wireless networks. The lecture is open for PhD and MSc students.


Biography of Leonardo Badia


Leonardo Badia was born in Ferrara, Italy. He received both MSc and PhD in information engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Ferrara, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. He held positions at the the Department of Engineering, University of Ferrara, and the IMT Lucca Institute for Advanced Studies, Lucca, Italy. He also collaborated with RST Labs (now Wireless@KTH) at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) as a visiting researcher.

In March 2011 he joined the faculty of the University of Padova, Italy, where he is presently an Associate Professor.

His research interests involve mathematical characterizations of transmission protocols and energy harvesting processes, cross-layer optimization of multi-hop networks, and the application of game theory to wireless communications. He published over 150 articles in scientific journals and conferences. He has been an Editor/Program chair for many journals and conferences in the field of telecommunications, and is actively involved in the review process of scientific publications in the area.
