Dajana Cassioli

Assistant Professor

Dipartimento di Ingegneria e Scienze dell'Informazione e Matematica
Via Vetoio - I-67100 L'Aquila (Italy)



Dr. Dajana Cassioli received the “Laurea” degree in Electronic Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications and Microelectronics Engineering from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy, in 1999 and in 2003, respectively.

She is currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of L'Aquila, Italy, where she teaches (since 2008) the class of Systems and Applications on Networks of the course on Advanced Computer Networks for the Computer Science program. She served/serves as co-advisor of PhD candidates, advisor and co-advisor of many bachelor and master students.

Her main research interests are in the fields of wireless communication technologies, UWB radio and 60 GHz radio, ad-hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, wireless multimedia sensor networks, and IP networking.

In 2010 she has been awarded one of the prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Grants for starting independent researchers in the domain of Physical Sciences and Engineering for the project VISION (Video-oriented UWB-based Intelligent Ubiquitous Sensing) (Duration: 4 years; Budget: 1,2M ). These grants are aimed at supporting fundamental research. The selection recognizes the excellence of the applicant young researchers, evaluating their curriculum and the ideas on which project proposals are based. Out of 1112 applications for that call, 107 have been successful, and Italy received 7 of them. Within the ERC Starting Grant VISION she is designing and investigating novel architectures for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks based on UWB 60 GHz radios, IP technology, and full context-awareness and adaptability. She is also working towards the definition of a comprehensive and unified model for the 60 GHz communication channel, based on experimental data obtained through an extensive propagation measurement campaign in different environments over the bands 54-59 GHz and 61-66 GHz.

She is author and co-author of tens of publications on prestigious International Journals and Conferences. She is Technical Program Co-Chair of the 15th Internat. Telecommun. Network Strategy and Planning Symp. (NETWORKS 2012), October 15-18, 2012, Rome, Italy. She served several times as a member of the Technical Program Committee of International Conferences, like the ICC, PIMRC, VTC, GLOBECOM. She is an Editor of the ISRN Journal on Communications of Hindawi Corp. She served/serves as a reviewer of many international journal and international conferences, including IEEE Journal on Select. Areas in Commun, IEEE Trans. on Commun, IEEE Communic. Letters, IEEE Trans. on Antennas and Prop, IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics, IEEE Internat. Conf. on Commun. and IEEE Vehic. Technol. Conf.

She is a Senior Member of IEEE, a Member of Communications Society and Computer Society, and a Member of the ACM. She is the Chair of the IEEE Joint VT06/COM19 Italy Chapter.

From Nov. 2005 to Jan. 2012 she has been the Director of the associated laboratory of RADIOLABS at the University of L’Aquila, which is a university-industry research consortium for the development of radio technologies, established in 2001. She has been the scientific officer responsible in RADIOLABS for the IST European Project ULTRAWAVES (IST-2001-35189 of FP5), where she contributed to the characterization of the UWB propagation channel and to the measurements and modeling of the UWB interference. She was involved in the European Integrated Projects PULSERS (FP6-506897) and PULSERS Phase II (FP6-027142), where she contributed to the MAC studies and simulations of architectures and to the energy-aware routing design and networking issues for UWB sensor networks, respectively. She has been the Scientific Responsible for RadioLabs of the European Project WiNNOVATE - Mediterranean Wireless Innovation (1G-MED08-525) of the STC Programme MED, implementing a pilot for a demonstration of Smart City.

Since 2009 she serves as an Expert for the European Community, for the Review and Evaluation of IST Fp7 European Projects within the Objective 1.1 “The Network of the Future”. Since 2010, she is also an Evaluator for Greek national projects.

In 2003-2006 she was Adjunct Professor at the University of Rome Tor Vergata teaching the class of Software for Telecommunications of the Telecommunication Engineering program.

In the year 2000, she was a Summer Manager with the Wireless Systems Research Dep. at AT&T Labs-Research, NJ, USA, working on the statistical analysis of UWB signal propagation. She has been involved in the activity of definition of the standard channel model for the IEEE 802.15.4, ended in 2005.

In 1999, she obtained an Assegno di Ricerca (for one year renewable for two) from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, focused on the analysis and simulation of the TD-CDMA Radio Interface of UMTS system.

From 1998 to 1999, she has been with the Fondazione Ugo Bordoni, Rome, Italy.
