Telecommunications is a technological form of information exchange.
The transmission is realized through electromagnetic propagation - e.g., electric wires, radio, light.
My focus is on wireless technology, which brought me to New York City back in July 2014 as a postdoctoral research fellow at NYU, working on next generation 5G cellular networks. The key idea is to exploit higher frequency bands to achieve multi-Gbps data rates, namely mmWave, as demonstrated in this seminal work conducted by my group at NYU WIRELESS.
Before moving to NY, towards the end of my PhD, I co-founded a startup - Snapback - that focuses on the design of alternative interfaces to control more naturally mobile technologies like smartphones and wearables.
Take a look at my TEDx talk, where I provide a non-technical presentation about telecommunications and the future of wireless connectivity.
If you understand Italian, take a look at this deep dive into 5G, which is part of the Petrolio program produced by RaiUno.
I express my opinions about the upcoming communications technology, and share some of our latest 5G projects.
