I am mainly involved in the area of radar and signal processing. My research interests are:

  1. ISAR image autofocusing techniques
  2. Development of super-resolution ISAR image reconstruction techniques
  3. ISAR imaging of ships

Fabrizio Berizzi was born in Piombino (Italy) on November 1965. He received the electronic engineering and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pisa (Italy) in 1990 and 1994 respectively. Currently he is an associate professor of the University of Pisa (Italy) –Dept. of Information Engineering. His main research interests are in the fields of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR and ISAR) and fractal radar detection and modeling. He is the co-author of more than 80 papers in those fields. He has been a member of the technical committees of several international radar and remote sensing conferences. He is the reviewer of a few prestigious international journals (IEEE Trans. on AES, on AP, on GRSS, on IP and IEE Proceeding of Radar, Sonar and Navigation). He has been held some scientific seminars at the University of Warsaw, University of Melbourne and the Southampton Oceanography Center (SOC).
He currently holds the following courses: Digital Communication at the Computer Engineering and Remote Sensing Systems at Telecommunication Engineering both at  the
University of Pisa. He is also teaching Signal Theory I at the Italian Navy Academic and Digital Communications at the University of Siena. He has been involved both as a researcher and as the principal investigator in several national and international projects funded by the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), Ministero dell’Istruzione, Università e della Ricerca (MIUR), Italian Navy, Galileo Avionics S.p.A, European Union (EU).
He is a member of the IEEE.
