Biography

Stefano Tomasin received the Laurea degree and the Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Padova, Italy, in 1999 and 2003, respectively. In the Academic year 1999-2000 he was on leave at the IBM Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland, doing research on signal processing for magnetic recording systems. In the Academic year 2001-2002 he was on leave at Philips Research, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, studying multicarrier transmission for mobile applications. He joined University of Padova first as contractor researcher for a national research project (2002), then as Assistant Professor (2005) and since 2016 he is Associate Professor. In the second half of 2004 he was visiting faculty at Qualcomm, San Diego (CA) doing research on interference cancelation for mobile cellular systems. In 2007 he has been visiting Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, NY, working with prof. Elza Erkip on cooperative networks. From December 2014 to December 2015, he has been on a sabbatical leave as Principal Engineer at the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Laboratory, France Research Center of Huawei Technologies, in Boulogne-Billancourt, France. His current research interests include physical layer security, signal processing for wireless communications, optimization techniques for smart grids, synchronization, scheduling of communication resources. He is senior member of IEEE since 2011 and member of IEEE since 1999. Since 2011 he is Editor of both IEEE Transactions of Vehicular Technologies and EURASIP Journal of Wireless Communications and Networking. He was co-recipient of a best paper student award in 2009. Stefano Tomasin has participated in various industrial and academic research projects, receiving grants from the Italian Ministry for Education (FIRB project), collaborating with the Italian broadcasting company RAI and with companies in both Europe and Asia.
