Michela Svaluto Moreolo received the M.Sc. degree with honours in electronics engineering and the Ph.D. degree in telecommunications engineering from University Roma Tre, Rome, Italy, in May 2003 and April 2007, respectively. She was awarded (first in the ranking) with a PhD grant (Oct. 2003–Oct. 2006) at the Applied Electronics Department to pursue the PhD. From January 2007 to December 2008 she held a Postdoctoral position at the Applied Electronics Department of University Roma Tre. Since 2004, she was teaching assistant at Engineering Faculty of University Roma Tre for the courses of Photonics, Photonics for Telecommunications, Optical Communications and Signals. From January 2004 to July 2004, she was a visiting researcher at the ‘Christian Doppler Laboratory of Surface Optics’, Institute of Semiconductor and Solid State Physics, Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria.
In January 2009, she joined the Optical Networking Group of CTTC as Postdoctoral Researcher. In December 2009 she got a permanent position as CTTC Researcher, starting a new research line. Since then, she is the Coordinator of the Optical Transmission and Subsystems research line within the Optical Networks and Systems Department. She currently is a Senior Researcher of the Communication Networks Division. Since September 2016, she is a member of the Management Team of the CTTC, with the role of Project Management Coordinator. She is also the designated contact person with the role of HRS4R (Human Resources Strategy for Researchers) Organisation Administrator, as interface with the European Commission on behalf of CTTC regarding the HRS4R process.
She has been actively involved in several National and EU-funded (FP6, FP7 and H2020) R&D projects, with different roles including leading tasks and coordinating the activities on optical transmission for CTTC. She also participated in industrial contracts. Between January 2011 and December 2012, she was the principal investigator of an internal project (EOS) funded by CTTC to develop an experimental platform for transmission systems, which has been included into the ADRENALINE testbed. Currently, she is the CTTC principal investigator of the EU-funded H2020 ICT-30-2017 (Photonics KET) PASSION (780326) project.
Her research interest areas include optical/digital signal processing and advanced transmission technologies for high-capacity optical networks. Her research activity has been focused on the design and modelling of planar lightwave circuits, multiplexer/demultiplexers, encoder/decoders for IP routing, and slow-light devices to realize optical delay lines. Her research also included all optical regeneration, Radio over Fiber and Free Space Optics systems in collaboration with ISCOM, at Italian Communications Ministry. Currently, her studies are directed towards advanced multi-dimensional transmission systems and software-defined photonics for future optical networks.
She has co-authored two book chapters, over 130 scientific publications (30+ journals and 100+ international conference papers, including more than 15 invited talks) and 1 patent. She has been advisor of 3 PhD theses (1 ongoing) and 18 MSc/BSc theses. She has been involved in the organization of scientific events as member of the Organizing Committee (ECOC 2015), co-organizer of workshops (at ECOC 2015 and within PIC4TB), and as Technical Programme Committee (TPC) member of international conferences in the field of optical communications and photonics (OPTICS, EuCNC, OSA APC, SPIE Photonics West, OECC/PSC). She served as Editorial Advisory Board Member of the journal “Recent Advances in Communications and Networking Technology” and also serves as regular reviewer for high impact (IEEE/OSA) journals. Since 2013, she is an IEEE Senior Member.
