Short Bio

Luca Chiaraviglio is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at the Networking Group in the Department of Electronic Engineering of University of Rome Tor Vergata. He holds a Ph.D. in Telecommunication and Electronics Engineering, obtained from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He has spent research periods abroad in several international institutions, including: Boston University (USA), INRIA Sophia Antipolis (France), Auckland University of Technology (New Zealand) and ETECSA S.A. (Cuba).

Luca has co-authored 130+ publications in international journals, books and conferences, and he has collaborated with more than 200+ co-authors, which are affiliated with national and international institutions. He participates in the TPC of top-leading conferences, including IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE ICC, IEEE VTC and IEEE GlobalSIP. He is also a member of the organizing committee of different conferences, such as ECOC, LANMAN and 5G-Italia. Moreover, he is in the Editorial Board of IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE Access and IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking.

He is currently the coordinator of the national project BRIGHT: Bringing 5G Connectivity in Rural and Low-Income Areas. During the last years, he has been involved in different European projects, such as H2020 5G-EVE, H2020 Superfluidity, FP7 Trend, FP7 EcoNet, and FP7 Bone.

Luca has received the Best Paper Award in different conferences, including IEEE VTC and ICIN. Some of his papers are listed as Best Readings on Green Communications by IEEE. Moreover, he has been recognized as an author in the top 1% most highly cited papers in the ICT field worldwide.
