Short Bio:

Petrika Gjanci is a Postdoc researcher at the Computer Science Department of the Rome University "La Sapienza," Italy. He received the BS and MS degrees in computer engineering from the University of Rome “La Sapienza,” in 2009 and 2012, respectively, and the PhD degree in computer science from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, in March 2017. His research interests concern theoretical and experimental aspects of wireless sensor networking, with an emphasis on underwater communication and networking. He has collaborated extensively to large research EU funded projects such as SUNRISE and CLAM and has published over a dozen of papers in the most prominent venues.
