"The purpose of abstraction is not to be vague,
but to create a new semantic level in which one can be absolutely precise"

E. W. Dijkstra - from the Humble Programmer, 1972.
(Read also another interesting article about abstraction).

I am an Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano, Italy and a Senior Researcher at
SICS Swedish ICT. My research is about designing, building, and validating
networked embedded software to power the operation of cyberphysical systems, the "Internet of Things", wireless sensor networks, and drone sensor networks! I try not just to talk and to write about these systems, but also to build and deploy them!
