Andrea Carena received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. In 1998, he was a Visiting Researcher with the Optical Communication and Photonic Network Group, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA, directed by Prof. Blumenthal working in the realization of OPERA, an optical label swapping network testbed. From 2004 to 2014, he was an Assistant Professor with Politecnico di Torino. He collaborated in the development and implementation of OptSim, an optical transmission system simulator. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Optical Communication Group, Dipartimento di Elettronica e Telecomunicazioni, Politecnico di Torino. His research interests are in the area of physical layer design of optical communication systems: coherently detected systems, digital signal processing techniques for advanced modulation formats, digital nonlinearity mitigation, Nyquist-WDM for Terabit Superchannel implementation, modelling of non-linear fiber propagation, algorithm for computer simulation of fiber propagation and application of machine learning techniques to optical communications. He co-authored more than 200 scientific publications. In 2014 and 2015, he received the IEEE/OSA “Journal of Lightwave Technology” Best Paper Award.
