Alberto Rabbachin (S’03–M’07) received the Laurea degree in telecomunications engineering from the University of Bologna (Italy) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Oulu (Finland), in 2001 and 2008, respectively.

In 2011, he joined the Laboratory for information and decision systems (LIDS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he is currently a Marie Curie Fellow. He was a postdoctoral researcher with the Institute for the protection and security of the citizen of the European Commission Joint Research Center from 2008 to 2011. His research interests involve communication theory and stochastic geometry applied to real-problems in wireless networks including network secrecy, cognitive radio, ultrawide band transceiver design, network synchronization, ranging techniques, and interference exploitation.

Dr. Rabbachin is an Editor of the IEEE Communication Letters and served as symposium and workshop chair in various IEEE conferences. He received the IEEE Communications Society William R. Bennett Prize in the Field of Communications Networking (2012), the IEEE Globecom best paper award (2010), the European Commission JRC best young scientist award (2010), and the Nokia Fellowship (2005, 2006).  He is a  recipient of the International Outgoing Marie Curie Fellowship (2011-2014).
