MATTEO (CERIOTTI) ZELLA
Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things
I am a professor at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Germany. My research and teaching focus is on Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things.
Formerly, I was a Senior Researcher at the Networked Embbedded Systems group, headed by Pedro José Marrón, at the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany). Prior to moving to Essen, I was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems, headed by Klaus Wehrle, at RWTH Aachen University (Germany). My position in Aachen was funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Before that, I was at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, in Trento (Italy). As a Ph.D student and a postdoctoral researcher, I worked under the supervision of Amy Murphy. At that time, I was also a member of the D3S research group, led by Amy Murphy and Gian Pietro Picco.
