Mauro Tortonesi's Blog

A blog from a cranky and opinionated computer scientist

About Me

My name is Mauro Tortonesi and this is my personal Web site. Here you will find some info about me and my work.

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Ferrara. I teach the Computer Networks class for the Computer Science Engineering course. My research interests include IT service management, wireless and MANET communications, and advanced industrial automation. For an up-to-date list of publications, please refer to my research page.

I am also a long-time Open Source evangelist. I co-founded the Ferrara Linux User Group in 1999. I contributed to quite a few Open Source projects and I have also been the maintainer of GNU Wget for a couple of years. These days I mostly develop in Ruby and R. Using Vim, of course.

Finally, I an amateur film (yes, not digital) photographer. I really can’t claim I am a talented photographer, but I very much enjoy photography. I am not a hipster or a Leica fanboy. I shoot film because I truly find it a much superior medium than digital. I really do #believeinfilm

You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter. You can find a selection of my photos on Flickr.
