I am currently a researcher within the NavSAS research group, and an assistant professor with time contract at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications (DET), Politecnico di Torino, Italy. Since the first time I heard about the scientific aspects and technological challenges of navigation satellite systems, during my Master of Science, I had the dream and desire to work in this exciting field! I pursued my studies at the PLAN group of the University of Calgary and at the NavSAS group at Politecnico di Torino. I spent some time at the European Space Agency (ESA) and I even went to Antarctica, as a researcher-adventurer, to check how GNSS works at the World’s borders. My research interests include signal processing and simulation, applied to telecommunications, positioning and radio-navigation. In particular, my work is focused on GNSS-based atmospheric monitoring, on ionospheric scintillations detection and mitigation, on software defined radio technology for GNSS receivers, and on the design of innovative architectures and algorithms for GPS and Galileo receivers.
