Short biography

Dr. Domenico Giustiniano is Research Associate Professor (tenured) at IMDEA Networks Institute and leader of the Pervasive Wireless Systems group. Before joining IMDEA, he was a Senior Researcher and Lecturer at ETH Zurich. He also worked for a total of four years as Post-Doctoral Researcher in industrial research labs (Disney Research Zurich and Telefonica Research Barcelona). He holds a PhD in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Rome Tor Vergata (2008).

The original contributions Dr. Giustiniano has made to his field of research are exemplified by publications in international and highly competitive conference venues such as ACM MobiCom, ACM CoNEXT (7), IEEE INFOCOM (2), ACM/IEEE IPSN (4), and journals such as IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (2), IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (3) and IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. He has received the best paper award at IFIP Wireless Days 2013, best student paper award at IEEE PIRMC 2016 and best paper award runner-up at ACM CoNEXT 2016. He has been general co-chair of EWSN 2018 and of IFIP/IEEE SustainIT 2015, and regularly serves as TPC member in top conferences such as ACM Conext 2017 and IEEE INFOCOM 2014-2018. Dr. Domenico Giustiniano is IEEE senior member and ACM member. Dr. Giustiniano has large experience in coordinating and participating in funded research projects such as MATISSE, SPECTRUMCOP (industrial projects), mmMAGIC (EU H2020 PPP), Flex5gware (EU H2020 PPP). Dr. Giustiniano is leader of the OpenVLC project, an open-source platform for research in visible light communication networks and co-founder of the non-profit Electrosense association, a crowd-sourcing initiative to collect and analyse spectrum data.
