Biography

Michele Polese [S’17-M’20] is an Associate Research Scientist at Northeastern University, Boston, since March 2020, working with Tommaso Melodia. He received his Ph.D. at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova in 2020 under the supervision of with Michele Zorzi. He also was an adjunct professor and postdoctoral researcher in 2019/2020 at the University of Padova. During his Ph.D., he visited New York University (NYU), AT&T Labs in Bedminster, NJ, and Northeastern University, Boston, MA. He collaborated with several academic and industrial research partners, including Intel, InterDigital, NYU, AT&T Labs, University of Aalborg, King's College and NIST.
He was awarded with the Best Journal Paper Award of the IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee on Communications Systems Integration and Modeling (CSIM) 2019, the Outstanding Young Researcher Award 2019 from the IEEE ComSoc EMEA Region, the Best Paper Award at WNS3 2019 and 2020, and the IEEE MedComNet Mario Gerla Best Paper Award 2020. His research interests are in the analysis and development of protocols and architectures for future generations of cellular networks (5G and beyond), in particular for millimeter-wave communication, and in the performance evaluation of complex networks.
