Andrea Conti, Ph.D.

Wireless Communication and Localization Networks




Andrea Conti received the Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in telecommunications engineering and the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering and computer science from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 1997 and 2001, respectively.

He is a Full Professor at the University of Ferrara, Italy. Prior to joining the University of Ferrara, he was with CNIT and with IEIIT/CNR. In Summer 2001, he was with the Wireless Systems Research Department at AT&T - Research Laboratories. Since 2003, he has been a frequent visitor to the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he presently holds the Research Affiliate appointment. He is a coauthor of Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks: Enabling Technologies, Information Processing and Protocol Design (Elsevier, 2008). His research interests involve theory and experimentation of wireless systems and networks including network localization and navigation, adaptive diversity communications, multidimensional random sampling, and wireless network secrecy.

Dr. Conti served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, as an Editor for IEEE COMMUNICATIONS LETTERS, as an Editor for the IEEE WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS LETTERS, and as a Guest-Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing (Special Issue on Wireless Cooperative Networks, 2008). He organized and chaired a number of IEEE conferences. He was elected Chair of the IEEE Communications Society’s Radio Communications Technical Committee. He is an elected Fellow of the IET and has been selected as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer.
