I graduated in Electronic Engineering at the University of Florence (Italy) in 1995 and received the Ph.D. degree in 2000 from the Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands). From 2000 to 2003 I worked as Senior Researcher at Marconi Mobile. I currently am assistant professor at the University of Pisa (Italy).

Research interests

My expertise and general interests span the areas of communications and signal processing, estimation and detection theory. My main research interests include:
  1. Resource allocation for multi-carrier systems: power, rate and channel allocation in single- and multi-cell scenarios.
  2. Time and frequency synchronization for OFDM and OFDMA systems
  3. Channel estimation and equalization.

Editorial Work

Reviewer for the journals: IEEE Trans. Commun.; IEEE Trans. Signal Processing; IEEE Trans. Wireless Commun.; IEEE Comm. Letters; IEEE Trans. Vehicular Technology.


My research is fully integrated with the activities of the research group Digital Transmission of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa. In particular, the main projects in which I have recently participated are:
  • European network of excellence (FP7), "NEWCOM# - NEtwork of Excellence in Wireless COMunications#", 2013-2015.
  • European CIPS 2010, "SWING - Short Wave critical Infrastructure Network based on new Generation of high survival radio communication systems", 2010-2013.
  • UE research project (FP7), "Seamless aeronautical networking through integration of data links, radios, and antennas" (SANDRA), 2009-2013.
  • European network of excellence (FP7), "NEWCOM++ - NEtwork of Excellence in Wireless COMunications++", 2008-2010. Local coordinator in charges of workpackages 8,9.
  • University of Pisa research project, "Design of efficient algorithms for cognitive radio systems", 2009-2010.
  • DoCoMo Euro-Labs (DOCOMO INC) sponsored research project, "Towards multi-carrier based cognitive radio: resolving PHY layer issues", 2006-2008.
