Tommaso Foggi was born in Parma, Italy, in 1978. He received the master's degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Parma in 2003 and the Ph.D. degree in Information Technology from the same University in 2008.
From 2009 to 2018 he was a researcher of National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT) in the University of Parma research unit.
Since 2021 he is Associate Professor at University of Parma, Department of Engineering and Architecture.
In 2003 he was granted a CNIT scholarship at the Photonic Networks and Technology National Laboratory in Pisa, Italy, for a project on maximum likelihood sequence detection in IM/DD optical communication systems, coordinated by Professor Enrico Forestieri. In 2004 he was granted a CNIT scholarship at the Department of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Parma for a project related to satellite navigation and positioning coordinated by Professor Giulio Colavolpe.

His main research interests include electronic signal processing for digital communication systems, in particular adaptive equalization, coding and iterative decoding techniques, channel impairment compensation, channel estimation, simulative software implementation.

He is author of several internation journal and conference papers and patents, and he is recipient of the the best paper award for the Optical Networks and Systems symposium at the IEEE International Conference on Communcations (ICC 2008), Beijing, China, May 2008. He has been involved in research projects funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR), by the European Space Agency (ESA), and by private companies (Ericsson, Inmarsat, Huawei, etc.).
