Domenico Giustiniano

Research Assistant Professor, IMDEA Networks Institute

Before joining IMDEA, he was a Senior Researcher and Lecturer in the Communication System Group (CSG) of ETH Zurich, and Post-Doctoral Researcher at Disney Research Zurich (2010-2012) and at Telefonica Research Barcelona (2008-2010). He holds a PhD in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Dr. Giustiniano devotes most of his current research to emerging areas in the field of wireless networking and localization systems.

The original contributions he has made to his field of research are exemplified by first-author publications in top dissemination venues such as ACM MobiCom, ACM CoNEXT and IEEE INFOCOM, and in journals such as IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and best paper award at IFIP Wireless Days'12 for his contribution on visible light networking with LED-to-LED communication. His approach to scientific work oriented to devise solutions to real-world problems based on real-world assumptions is further proved by four patents.
