I graduated in Telecomm Engineering (summa cum laude) at the Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy for my Bachelor (2007) and Master (2010). I received my PhD on through-wall radar imaging at Durham University (UK) in January 2014, and worked as a Research Associate on multistatic radar with Prof Hugh Griffiths at University College London between February 2014 and March 2016.
I then joined the University of Glasgow in April 2016 as a Lecturer in the Glasgow College UESTC, between the University of Glasgow and the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in Chengdu, for which I am the Exam and Assessment Coordinator, and course coordinator for teaching Circuits Analysis and Design.
I am a member of the IEEE and IET, Chartered Engineer (CEng), associate member of the EPSRC Peer Review College since July 2017, and a reviewer for several academic journals including IET Radar, Sonar & Navigation, IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems and IEEE Sensors. I am also che co-chair of the MODEST (Modern Trends in Short Range Sensing) focus group within the UK radar society EMSIG with Prof Marina Gashinova, University of Birmingham.
My research Interests Include the multiple aspects of developing, testing and using bistatic and multistatic radar systems, for applications such as:
- Human micro-Doppler signatures for security and healthcare applications (gait recognition, activity identification, gesture recognition)
- UAVs and drones detection and classification
- Machine learning algorithms for radar target classification
- Through-wall radar imaging
- Wind farm clutter characterization and mitigation
- Maritime targets and sea clutter characterization
- Multipurpose and diverse waveforms for radar and communication purposes
