Guido Luzi graduated in Physics, and holds a PhD in Electronic Systems Engineering. He is with the Remote Sensing Department of the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC), Spain since January 2014. He is involved in research activities concerning the application of spaceborne and terrestrial radar techniques. Since 1986 he has been working in microwave remote sensing, active and passive, both in industrial and research institutions, dedicating his work to the development and experimentation of microwave sensors. He took part in several International remote sensing campaigns and projects as AGRISCATT87, AGRISCATT88, MACEurope, EPOCH, MEDALUS II, ENVIRONMENT, GALAHAD, APhoRISM, and several national (Italian and Spanish) research contracts. He worked with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of the University of Florence, and later with the Department of Earth Sciences of the same University, dealing with various applications from the monitoring of volcanic areas as the Stromboli Island, to the development and experimentation of microwave sensors for the detection of vital signs (heart beat and breath), and Civil Engineering and Cultural Heritage applications.
In 2010 he moved to the Institute of Geomatics, where he was involved in the design and experimentation of radar-based sensing techniques.
His main research lines are focused towards geophysical applications of microwave sensors and techniques, with emphasis in the observation of land surfaces through terrestrial and satellite microwave interferometry, and civil structures monitoring. According to these topics he is presently involved in some H2020 projects as HEIMDALL – Multi-Hazard Cooperative management tool for data exchange, response planning and scenario building; GIMS: Geodetic Integrated Monitoring system.
He has authored or co-authored many papers in international journals concerning the aforementioned topics, and published more than fifty papers in referred international journals. He acts as referee for different journals: IEEE Trans. On Geosc. and Rem. Sens., IEEE Geosc. Rem. Sens. Letters, Int. Jour. of Rem. Sens, IEEE Selected Topics in Appl. Earth Obser.
