Prof. Dr. Laura Cottatellucci

Laura Cottatellucci obtained the Habilitation from University for Nice-Sophia Antipolis (2015, France), the PhD in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Sciences from Technische Universität Wien (2006, Austria), and the Master degree in Electrical Engineering from La Sapienza University, Rome (1995, Italy).

Since December 2017, she is Professor for Digital Communications at the Institute of Digital Communications of Friedrich-Alexander Universität (FAU) Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany) and Adjunct Professor (since March 2018) at the Dept. of Communication Systems at EURECOM. Prior to joining FAU, she was Associate Professor (July 2016-Nov 2017) and Assistant Professor (Dec. 2006-June 2016) at EURECOM. From January to November 2006 she was Research Fellow at University of South Australia, Australia, working on information theory for networks with uncertain topology and in INRIA, Sophia Antipolis, France (October-December 2005). From April 2000 to September 2005, she worked as Senior Researcher at Forschungszentrum Telekommunikation Wien, Austria, on CDMA, MIMO, and satellite systems. From 1995 until 2000, she was with Telecom Italia as responsible of industrial projects after specialization in networking at the Telecom Italia School for Advanced Studies Guglielmo Reiss Romoli (1996, Italy). She held visiting appointments at EURECOM (France- 2005), FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany, 2010), and NTNU Trondheim (Norway, 2005, 2007).

Laura Cottatellucci currently is an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications (since September 2015) and IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (February 2016) and served as guest editor for EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (special issue on cooperative communications). In Mach 2018 she received the award as best editor for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing. She is an elected member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Signal Processing for Communications and Networking. Her research interests lie in the field of communications theory and signal processing for wireless communications, satellite, and complex networks. Her contributions in these fields are based on the application of mathematical tools such as random matrix theory, optimization, and game theory.
