Fabiano Locatelli received both the B.Sc. and the M.Sc. degree in Telecommunication Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2014 and 2017, respectively. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D at the Polytechnic University of Catalunya, UPC.
In May 2018 he joined CTTC as an Early Stage Researcher in the framework of the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, ONFIRE (Future Optical Networks for Innovation, Research and Experimentation) project.
His current research interests include data plane technologies for disaggregated optical networks: suitable transmission schemes enhanced thanks to white boxes approach and flexible paradigm, including system margins reduction and new optical performance monitoring techniques agnostic to the signal waveform.
