Luca Mottola

I am a Full Professor (Professore Ordinario) at Politecnico di Milano, where I lead the Networked Embedded Software Lab (NESLab). I do research to build the next-generation Internet of Things. I hold or held adjunct or visiting positions at RI.SE Sweden, Uppsala University, NXP Technologies, TU Graz, University of Southern California, University of Illinois at Chicago, and USI Lugano. I am the Chair's Delegate for International Relations at the Department of Electronics, Informatics and Bioengineering (DEIB), and the coordinator of International Mobility in Computer Engineering.
