Something about me

Who I am and what I do.

My name is Carmine Benedetto, I was born in Tricarico (Matera, Italy) on the 11th May, 1986.
I received the Bachelor's Degree and the Master's Degree in Computer Systems Engineering
(Curriculum Networking and Multimedia) in 2009 and 2012, respectively, from the University of Pisa.
Specifically, for my Master's Degree Thesis, I worked on a research project entitled
Design and Performance Evaluation of a Handoff Algorithm for
Mobile Devices in Wireless Vehicular Environments
.
In 2013 I joined the Research & Development Team at Fluidmesh Networks
working as Embedded Software Engineer.
I'm always interested in new technologies and I enjoy developing new ideas
with my personal project, Icosaedro Solutions.
