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 as AGRISCATT87, AGRISCATT88, MACEurope, EPOCH, MEDALUS II, ENVIRONMENT, GALAHAD and several national research contracts. In the last decade, 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 and monitoring of volcanic areas as the Stromboli Island, the development and experimentation of microwave sensors for the detection of vital signs (heart beat and breath), to 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 with emphasis on GB-SAR interferometry. He has mainly focused his interest towards geophysical applications, with emphasis in the observation of landslides through terrestrial and satellite microwave interferometry and civil structures monitoring. Main projects in which he is presently involved are APhoRISM “Advanced Procedures for volcanic and seismic monitoring” FP7-SPACE-2013-1, a STREP of the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission; NAGIARS, “New developments in geophysics and engineering applied to seismic risk assessment” with the Dpt. Enginyeria del Terreny, Cartogràfica i Geofísica of the Techical University of Catalunya (UPC); CIUDEN, dedicated to the deformation monitoring during the injection period by means of SAR techniques, CO2 geological storage Programme. 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.
