Michele Rossi is an Associate Professor with the Department of Information Engineering at the University of Padova, Italy. His research interests lie in wireless sensing, green mobile networks, edge and wearable computing. In the last few years, he has been actively involved in EU projects on IoT technology (IOT-A, FP7-ICT- 2009-5, project no. 257521) and has collaborated with SMEs such as Worldsensing (Barcelona, ES) in the design of optimized IoT solutions for smart cities and with big companies such as SAMSUNG and INTEL, developing technologies within the wireless health and IoT domains. Specifically, in 2014, he has been the recipient of a SAMSUNG GRO award with a project entitled “Boosting Efficiency in Biometric Signal Processing for Smart Wearable Devices”. Since 2016, he has been collaborating with INTEL on the design of IoT protocols exploiting cognition and machine learning, as part of the INTEL Strategic Research Alliance (ISRA) R&D program. His research is also supported by the European Commission through the H2020 ITN SCAVENGE project (project no. 675891) on green 5G networks and by the H2020 ITN MINTS (project no. 861222) on millimeter-wave networking and sensing for beyond 5G networks. Dr. Rossi has been the recipient of six best paper awards from the IEEE, currently serves on the Editorial Boards of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and of the IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society (OJ-COMS). He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
