Short Bio

Pietro Michiardi received his M.S. in Computer Science from EURECOM and his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino. Pietro received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Telecom ParisTech (former ENST, Paris), and his HDR (Habilitation) from UNSA. Today, Pietro is a Professor of Computer Science at EURECOM, where he leads the Distributed System Group, which blends theory and system research focusing on large-scale distributed systems (including data processing and data storage), and scalable machine learning algorithms. Currently, Pietro is the Head of the Data Science Department.
