    Luca Davoli currently is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Parma. He received his Dr. Ing. (Laurea) degree in Information Engineering from the University of Parma, Italy, in 2013 with a thesis entitled “Distributed and Scalable Architecture for Service Discovery in IoT”.
    In 2017, he received his Ph.D. at the Department of Information Engineering of the same university with a thesis entitled “Architecture and Technologies for the Internet of Things”.
    Since January 2014, he is a member of the Internet of Things Lab (IoTLab) (ex Wireless Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks Laboratory – WASNLab) at the Department of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Parma.
    He is an IEEE member and, since 2018, a GTTI member.
