Rodolfo Pellizzoni joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo as an Assistant Professor in September 2010. He received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in August 2010. While at UIUC, he was a member of the Real-Time and Embedded System Lab, advised by Prof. Marco Caccamo. Prior to his PhD at UIUC, he received a Laurea degree in Computer Engineering (Master equivalent) from the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and the University of Pisa in Italy.
My main research focus is the development of new hardware and software architectures for the next generation of high-performance, safety-critical embedded systems - Cyber-Physical Systems. Due to the requirements imposed by these systems in term of performance, safety and timing predictability, it is a multidisciplinary effort involving embedded system architecture and hardware/software co-design, real-time resource management, timing analysis and operating systems.
