As a research assistant in the Computer Science Department, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), he participated in data network design under the ARPA project from 1970 to 1971. From November 1975 to September 1976, he was at the Computer Science Department of IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, working on modeling analysis and optimization techniques for teleprocessing systems. In 1979, he was a visiting associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hawaii. In the summer of 1981, he was at the Computer Science Department, IBM Research Center, San Jose, California, working on local area networks. During the summers of 1983, 1989, and 1992, he was with the Research in Distributed Processing Group, Department of Computer Science, UCLA, working on fiber optic local area networks. During the summer of 1986, he was with Bell Communication Research working on metropolitan area networks. In 1994, he was a visiting scientist at NEC Network Research Laboratory, Japan. Since 1980, he has been a full professor in the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione at the Politecnico di Milano. His current research interests include computer communication networks, packet switching networks, multiple access systems, modeling and performance evaluation of communication systems, local area networks, wireless cellular systems, and integrated services over IP networks. Dr. Fratta is a fellow of IEEE.
