Alberto Dassatti

Alberto Dassatti is full professor at REDS.

He obtained his M.Sc. in electronic engineering at Politecnico di Torino in November 2002. In February 2003 he joined the Advanced Systems Technology (AST) group of STMicroelectronics in Geneva, where he worked eight months on the FPGA prototyping of Turbo decoders.

In 2007 he spent seven months at UNSW (University of New South Wales in Sydney) as part of his doctoral studies. The following year he joined the VLSILab of Politecnico di Torino as research assistant, completing his Ph.D studies with a work entitled "Methodologies and Architectures for wireless reconfigurable communication Systems".

Since 2002 is an entrepreneur and independent consultant for several companies in the IT domain, and in 2006 he co-founded MicroC SNC, a high-tech consulting company. After obtaining his doctorate he taught numerous courses for the University and for private companies on topics such as the Linux operating system, VHDL for FPGA design, and high-performance C programming. In 2009 he was engaged as systems engineer with the NATO Underwater Research Center in La Spezia, Italy, where he was in charge of designing new data acquisition systems for underwater experiments.

In 2012 he returned to Switzerland to join the REDS institute as senior engineer and lecturer, and then become professor.

Alberto's research activities and work experiences focus on high-performance computing, FPGA algorithms design, architectures for embedded DSP processing, and reconfigurable computing. His main interests are in Hardware / Software for digital wireless transmission systems (MIMO, OFDM and Channel Codes Decoders), cryptography and image / video processing. He is co-author of several articles on these topics published by the IEEE and ACM.
