Gaudino, Roberto

PhD, Professor at Politecnico di Torino, Italy.

Prof. Roberto Gaudino is currently an associate professor in the Optical Communication Group (OCG) at Politecnico di Torino, where he is working on several research topics related to optical communications. He received the Laurea in Ingegneria Elettronica (summa cum laude) from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (optical communications) in 1998. Dr. Gaudino spent the year of 1997 at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, as a visiting researcher in the OCPN group, where he worked in the realization of the MOSAIC optical network testbed. During the period 1998-2001, he was part of the core development team for the OPTSIM™ commercial software for long-haul system simulations. His main research interests started in the long haul DWDM systems, fiber non-linearity, modeling of optical communication systems and on the experimental implementation of optical networks, and moved in latest years to optical access and home networks.

Prof. R. Gaudino has a long experience in EU projects. He was the Coordinator of the two STREP projects POF-ALL (FP6, Future Networks, 2006-2008) and POF-PLUS (FP7, Photonics, 2008-2011) on plastic optical fibers for home networking, that are today largely recognized as pioneering projects on Gigabit transmission over plastic optical fibers. He was also WP leader in EPhoton-ONE FP6 Network of Excellence, for the Workpackage on home networks, and the POLITO coordinator for the ALPHA Integrated projects in FP7, again on home and access networks. He consulted for several companies dealing with optical communications, and he is co-author of more than 160 papers in the field. He is a TPC member of several major conferences, including ECOC, ICC and Globecom.

Dr Gaudino has been a member of the CEI-Europe Faculty since 2001.
