His master thesis concerned the study and design of coding schemes for HDTV, developed at the RAI Research Center, Turin. Professor Montorsi has been at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA, and later at Sequoia Communications, CA, USA, working with the innovative design and implementation of a 3rd generation WCDMA receiver.
His interests are in the area of channel coding and wireless communications, particularly on the analysis and design of concatenated coding schemes and study of iterative decoding strategies. He is author of more than one hundred papers published in international journal and conference proceedings.
Professor Montorsi has been a member of the Continuing Education Institute-Europe faculty since 2003.
