Andrea Carena

Associate Professor

Andrea Carena is Associate Professor in the Optical Communication Group of Dipartimento di Elettronica e Telecomunicazioni at Politecnico di Torino, Italy.

Andrea Carena was born in Carmagnola, Italy, in 1970. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, in 1995 and 1998, respectively. In 1998, he was a Visiting Researcher with the Optical Communication and Photonic Network Group, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA, directed by Prof. Blumenthal working in the realization of OPERA, an optical label swapping network testbed. From 2004 to 2014, he was an Assistant Professor with Politecnico di Torino. He collaborated in the development and implementation of OptSim, an optical transmission system simulator. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Optical Communication Group, Dipartimento di Elettronica e Telecomunicazioni, Politecnico di Torino. His research interests include physical layer design optical communication systems: coherently detected systems, digital coherent receiver design, digital signal processing techniques for advanced modulation formats, digital nonlinearity mitigation, Nyquist-WDM for Terabit Superchannel implementation, algorithm for computer simulation of fiber propagation, and a particular emphasis on fiber nonlinearities modeling. He co-authored more than 180 scientific publications. In 2014 and 2015, he received the IEEE/OSA “JOURNAL OF LIGHTWAVE TECHNOLOGY” Best Paper Award.
