Curriculum Vitae
Geppino Pucci received the Laurea degree <I>summa cum laude</I> (1987), winning both the IBM and the UNITEAM awards for the best Italian theses in Computer Science, and the PhD degree (1993) both in Computer Science from the University of Pisa. From 1988 to 1990 he was a Research Associate at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, United Kingdom, where he conducted research on software reliability modelling for safety-critical systems. From 1990 to 1991 he was invited visiting graduate student at the International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley, California (supervised by Turing Award winner Prof. Richard Karp). In 1992, he joined the Dept. of information Engineering (DEI) of the University of Padova, Italy, as an Assistant Professor. On leave from DEI, he returned in 1993 to Berkeley as a postdoctoral fellow. In 1996, he spent the Summer Semester at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY as a visiting professor and course instructor. From 1998 to 2001, he was an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering at DEI. Since 2001, he is a Full Professor of Computer Science at DEI.

Prof. Pucci's research interests lie broadly in the area of Algorithmics and Data Analysis, with emphasis on parallel and distributed computing, and, more recently, computational and modelling issues of Big Data. He has authored or coauthored over 90 papers in these fields, which appeared in top international journals or refereed conference proceedings. He was the Padova site leader of the large EU FP6 IP Project AEOLUS: <I>Algorithmic Principles for Building Efficient Overlay Computers</I> (2005-2010), involving over 20 European research and industrial sites. He also led two projects funded by the University of Padova, one funded by the Italian National Research Council (CNR), and a NATO project in collaboration with Texas A&M University, College Station, USA. He has also participated as a key researcher to seven Projects of National Relevance (PRIN) funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR) and two large EU Esprit 3 and 4 Projects (GEPPCOM and PDCS). Over the years, his research has received further support by CNR of Italy, the UK NCSR ALVEY Directorate, and the US National Science Foundation.

Pucci is or has been a member of the Editorial Board or Program Committee of prestigious international journals and numerous symposia. He has spent several teaching and/or long research visits to a number of research institutions in Asia, Europe and the United States, including the Chinese Academy of Science in Beijing (China); the University of Damascus (Syria, as a UN-sponsored teacher); CNRS-LIAFA at Université Paris Diderot - Paris VII (F); the City University of London (UK); University College Cork (IRL); Brown University, Cornell University, University of Illinois at Chicago and at Urbana-Champaign, and Texas A&M University (USA).
