Hacks on low level stuff, like OS & VMM, at SUSE. Passionate about computer programming in general, Linux and Open Source but also reading whatching TV series and travelling around the World (most of the times in an RV) with his wife and 3 kids.

Dario is a Virtualization Software Engineer at SUSE. He's been active in the Open Source virtualization space since ~8 years, mostly on the Xen project, and he's currently a maintainer of the Xen hypervisor scheduler.

Currently, he is also working on KVM, Libvirt, QEMU and other things. His primary focus is on scheduling and on performance evaluation and improvement.

During his Ph.D, he worked on real-time scheduling on Linux, and he's one of the original author of what today is the SCHED_DEADLINE scheduling class.

Since 2010, he has spoke and presented his work at several events and conferences, like Linux Kernel Summit, Linux Plumbers, Xen Project Developers Summit, FOSDEM, LinuxLab and OSPM. Just very recently, he's given technical seminars to Computer Architecture students at Italian universities of Pisa and Modena.
