Gabriele Russo Russo

I am a Research Associate at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, in Italy, where I received my PhD degree in May 2021.

My research interests span the area of distributed computing systems with emphasis on performance optimization and run-time self-adaptation. As a PhD student, I investigated auto-scaling solutions for data stream processing applications, combining Reinforcement Learning techniques and traditional performance modeling tools.

Here is my CV and a list of publications (also available in DBLP).
