Andrea Carena was born in Carmagnola (Torino), Italy on October 7, 1970.
He received the Laurea in Ingegneria Elettronica (summa cum laude), in 1995, and the
Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (Optical Communications),
in 1999, both from Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy.
In 1998 he spent a year as a visiting researcher in the OCPN
(Optical Communication and Photonic Network) group before at Georgia Institute of
Technology in Atlanta (GA) and then at University of
California at Santa Barbara (CA) working in the realization of OPERA, an optical label swapping network testbed.
He has collaborated in the development and implementation of OptSim, an
optical transmission system simulator.
He is currently an assistant professor in the Optical Communication
Group at Politecnico di Torino and his research interests are in the
field of new modulation formats, long-haul DWDM systems, fiber nonlinearity, performance analysis and computer simulation of lightwave transmission systems.
Recently he started to study the new generation of optical coherent communication systems where polarization and carrier recovery is performed in the electronic domain by post-processing the signal.
Dr. Andrea Carena has co-authored more than 50 papers in the field of optical fiber transmission.
