Emanuele Viterbo (F'11) was born in Torino, Italy, in 1966. He received his degree (Laurea) in Electrical Engineering in 1989 and his Ph.D. in 1995 in Electrical Engineering, both from the Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy.
From 1990 to 1992 he was with the European Patent Office, The Hague, The Netherlands, as a patent examiner in the field of dynamic recording and error-control coding.
Between 1995 and 1997 he held a post-doctoral position in the Dipartimento di Elettronica of the Politecnico di Torino. In 1997-98 he was a post-doctoral research fellow in the Information Sciences Research Center of AT&T Research, Florham Park, NJ, USA. He became first Assistant Professor (1998) then Associate Professor (2005) in Dipartimento di Elettronica at Politecnico di Torino. From 2006 to 2010 he was Full Professor in Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informatica e Sistemistica (DEIS) at Università della Calabria, Italy and currently at Dept. of Electrical & Computer Systems Engineering (ECSE), Monash University, Clayton, Melbourne, Australia.
Prof. Emanuele Viterbo is an ISI Highly Cited Researcher since 2009. He is Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Theory , European Transactions on Telecommunications and Journal of Communications and Networks , and Guest Editor for IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing: Special Issue Managing Complexity in Multiuser MIMO Systems.
In 1993 he was visiting researcher in the Communications Department of DLR, Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. In 1994 and 1995 he was visiting the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (E.N.S.T.), Paris. In 2003 he was visiting researcher at the Maths Department of EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.
