Gianluca Cornetta

Gianluca Cornetta obtained his MSc Degree from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in 1995 and his PhD from Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Spain) in 2001, both in Electronic Engineering. In 2003 he joined Universidad CEU-San Pablo in Madrid (Spain), where he is presently an Associate Professor. Prior to joining Universidad CEU-San Pablo, he was a Lecturer in the Departement of Electronic Engineering of Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Spain), a Digital Designer at Infineon Technologies Gmbh (Germany), and an ICT Consultant at Tecsidel SA (Spain) in the field of real-time embedded systems. In 2004 he founded the Department of Electronic System Engineering and Telecommunications, which he chaired until February 2008. He is also a research fellow at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and an invited Professor at the Institut Superieur d’Electronique de Paris (ISEP) where he has taught Wireless System Design in the Advances in Communication Environment (ACE) Master until 2018. His current research interests include RF circuit design for wireless sensor networks, digital communication circuits and distributed real-time embedded systems covering the whole IoT stack from sensor to cloud.
