Michele Polese receives the 2022 ISSNAF Young Investigator Award for Computer Science

Michele Polese received the Mario Gerla award for research in computer science at the ISSNAF Young Investigators Award ceremony in Washington, DC, on November 7, 2022. Polese, a principal research scientist at ECE and the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things (WIoT), designs and optimizes next-generation wireless spectrum systems.

ISSNAF confers the Young Investigator Awards every year to outstanding, early-career Italian researchers who work in the United States or Canada in recognition of their significant and innovative contributions to their field of study. Specifically, the Mario Gerla award was established in 2019 by the Gerla family to recognize significant contributions in the area of computer science.

Polese’s research interests are in the analysis and development of protocols and architectures for future generations of cellular networks (5G and beyond). In particular, he focuses on Open Radio Access Networks (Open RAN), millimeter-wave and terahertz networks, spectrum sharing and passive/active user coexistence, and the performance evaluation of end-to-end, complex networks.

Polese presented his research on open spectrum systems at the 2022 Symposium for the Mario Gerla award, and a recording is available on YouTube.
