Biography:

Italo Atzeni received the MSc degree in telecommunications engineering from the University of Cagliari (Italy) in 2009 and the PhD degree in signal processing and communications from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech (Spain) in 2014, both with honors (summa cum laude). He conducted his PhD at the Signal Processing and Communications Group, Signal Theory and Communications Department at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech (Spain). In 2013, he was visiting researcher in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He is/has been involved in the CONSOLIDER-INGENIO project COMONSENS, in the TEC project MOSAIC, in the FP7 project RESCUECELL, and in the TEC project DISNET.
