I currently am an Associate Professor at the the University of Pisa.
In 2018 I spent a month at Xidian University in Xi'an doing research and teaching a course or Advanced resource allocation for wireless systems. In 2014 I spent the fall semester at Columbia University in New York as Adjunct Associate Professor.
Before being at Pisa University, I was Senior Researcher at Marconi Mobile (Leonardo).
I received the Ph.D. degree from the Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) and graduated in Electronic Engineering at the University of Florence (Italy).
Here you can find my most relevant publications. Or you can check my Scholar page.


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. My current work is on allocation in 5G with an interest on interference-related scenarios, such as MIMO, D2D, full duplex and NOMA communications.
  2. Synchronization and channel estimation for OFDMA systems with a focus on LTE and 5G.
  3. Enviromental monitoring by opportunistic use of radio signal.

Editorial Work

Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing. Reviewer for many journals among which are: IEEE Transactions on Communications; IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications; IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology.
