Brief CV

Gabriella Bosco was born in Ivrea, Italy, in 1973. She received the Degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 1998 (with a thesis on the non-linear effect of the propagation in WDM optical systems) and the PhD in Electronic and Communication Engineering in 2002 (with a thesis on the performance analysis of optical communication systems), both from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. 

In 2000 she was a visiting researcher at University of California at Santa Barbara in the research group directed by Prof. Blumenthal, working on performance monitoring technique for optical systems. From 1998 to 2011, she held a post-doctoral position in the OptCom group at Politecnico di Torino, where she worked as an Assistant Professor from 2011 to 2014.

She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications at Politecnico di Torino, teaching classes on signal analysis and processing and working on several research topics related to optical communications. Her main research interests are focused on the performance analysis and design of optical transmission systems and the application of digital signal processing techniques in optical links. 

Since 2002, she has actively participated in several projects funded by the European Commission (E-Photon/One, Nobel, BONE, and Euro-FOS) and in several research projects funded by national and international companies (Huawei, Cisco, Telecom Italia, ESA). 

Since 2012 she has been serving in the TPC of several national and international conferences: CLEO -  Laser Science to Photonic Applications, OFC - Optical Fiber Communications Conference, ACP - Asia Communication and Photonics Conference,  Fotonica, Tyrrhenian International Workshop on Digital Communications, IPC - IEEE Photonics Conference. In 2017 she was one of the Technical Program Chairs of the OFC conference. From 2014 to 2017 she was an Associate Editor for the IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology.

She has co-authored more than 180 papers in leading journals and conferences and has an h-index=23 on Scopus.
