Riccardo Palamà received the MSc in Telecommunication Engineering (2011) and the PhD in Information Engineering (2016) from the University of Pisa, (Italy), specialising in statistical signal processing and estimation and detection theory, with a particular focus on radar clutter modeling and target detection applied to bistatic radar systems. In the period 2016-2019 he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Sensors, Systems and Circuits Group of the University College London, developing algorithms for radar waveform design, analysis of the radar scattering from the sea surface and of the radar micro-Doppler signatures of rotor-blade drones and wind turbines. He collaborated with the University of Cape Town (South Africa) on the development of a novel multi-static multi-band radar system (NeXtRAD), designing signal and data processing algorithms to analyse automatically the data recorded by the system.
In June 2019, he joined the Division of Geomatics of the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya, where he is currently working as a Researcher. His main activity consists of developing signal and data processing tools for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Differential Interferometry, applied to both satellite-borne and ground-based radar data, focusing on geophysical applications. To this aim, he is currently developing an automatic version of the Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) processing chain, whose main outputs are the time series of the pixel displacement and of the deformation velocities.
