Biography

CarloFT

Carlo Riva is Full Professor of Electromagnetics at Politecnico di Milano where is teaching in electromagnetics courses since 1999. His main research activities are in the fields of tropospheric propagation of millimeter-waves, propagation impairment mitigation techniques, and satellite communication adaptive systems. He participated in the Olympus and Italsat propagation measurement campaigns, in various COST actions on propagation and telecommunications (255, 280 and IC0802), in the Satellite Communications Network of Excellence (SatNEx) and in the H2020-COMPET-2-2016 (Research and Innovation action, RIA, Project Number: 730104) project “Q/V Band Earth Segment Link for Future High Throughput Space Systems”. He is Italian delegate in the Steering Committee of the Network of Experts on Propagation of the European Space Agency. He is presently acting as Principal Investigator of the Italian Space Agency for the Alphasat ‘Aldo Paraboni’ Q/V Band propagation experiment.

Carlo G. Riva received the Laurea Degree (cum laude) in Electronic Engineering and the PhD degree in Electronic and Communication Engineering, from Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy, in 1990 and 1995, respectively. In 1999, he joined the Electronics and Information Science Department, Politecnico di Milano, where, since 2006, he has been an Associate Professor of electromagnetic fields. Since 1992, he participated in the Olympus, Italsat and Alphasat ‘Aldo Paraboni’ propagation measurement campaigns, in the COST255, COST280 and COSTIC0802 international projects on propagation and telecommunications, in the Satellite Communications Network of Excellence (SatNEx) and in the H2020-COMPET-2-2016 (Research and Innovation action, RIA, Project Number: 730104) project “Q/V Band Earth Segment Link for Future High Throughput Space Systems”. In 2010, he has been Director of the 49° Course “Radiowave Propagation” in the frame of the ‘International School of Quantum Electronics’ at Erice. In 2011 he is has been nominated to the Steering Committee of ESA’s Network of Experts as Italian Representative. In 2012 he has been appointed Principal Investigator by the Italian Space Agency for the Alphasat Aldo Paraboni propagation experiment He supports the ITU-R Study Groups activities as a delegate of SG3 and focal point for related propagation studies. He is chairman of the Working Group 3J (‘Propagation fundamentals) of the Study Group 3 of ITU-R. He is Associate Editor of IEEE Trasactions on Antenna and Propagation and member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Satellite Communications and Networking . He is the author of more than 250 papers published in international journals (63) or international conference proceedings (190). His main research activities are in the fields of atmospheric propagation of millimeter-waves, propagation impairment mitigation techniques, and satellite communication adaptive systems.
