Giulio Colavolpe was born in Cosenza, Italy, in 1969. He received the Dr. Ing. degree in Telecommunications Engineering (cum laude) from the University of Pisa, in 1994 and the Ph.D. degree in Information Technologies from the University of Parma, Italy, in 1998. Since 1997, he has been at the University of Parma, Italy, where he is now Professor of Telecommunications at the Dipartimento di Ingegneria e Architettura (DIA) and coordinates the activities of the SPADiCLab. In 2000, he was Visiting Scientist at the Institut Eurécom, Valbonne, France.
His research interests include the design of digital communication systems, adaptive signal processing (with particular emphasis on iterative detection techniques for channels with memory), channel coding and information theory. In particular, he is the principal investigator of several research projects funded by the European Space Agency (ESA-ESTEC), by Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca (MIUR), and by several international telecommunications companies.
He served as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, IEEE Transactions on Communications, and as an Executive Editor for Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (formerly European Transactions on Telecommunications). He served also as a Technical Program Committee (TPC) member for several international conferences. He served also as an Area Editor for "Signal processing for communications" for the "14th European Signal Processing Conference" (EUSIPCO 2006), Florence, Italy and as TPC Co-chair for the 1st Workshop on Orthogonal Time Frequency Space Modulation (OTFS) for 6G and Future High-mobility Communications, Montreal, Canada.
He received the best paper award at the 13th International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks (SoftCOM'05), Split, Croatia, September 2005, the best paper award for Optical Networks and Systems at the IEEE International Conference on Communcations (ICC 2008), Beijing, China, May 2008, and the best paper award at the 5th Advanced Satellite Mobile Systems Conference and 11th International Workshop on Signal Processing for Space Communications (ASMS&SPSC 2010).
Giulio Colavolpe is a CNIT member and an IEEE Senior member. He is included in the World's Top 2% Scientists by Stanford University.
