Personal profile

Research profile

Francesco Laghezza is a Post Doc Researcher at the Signal Processing Systems (SPS) Group, Department of Electrical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in The Netherlands. His main research focuses on joint Radar Communication aspects and challenges for the automotive scenario. Dr. Laghezza have authored more than 70 papers in leading peer-reviewed journals and conferences, and 5 papents. During his activities, he was honoured with the Young Engineering prize, during the 2014 International Radar Symposium, and with the Thales prize for his contribution in developing the first hybrid, LIDAR\RADAR integrated architecture. From 2010 to 2016, He was a researcher at CNIT (National Interuniversity Consortium for Telecommunications) in Pisa (Italy), working as technical leader for the radar system developing and prototyping group within the European projects PHODIR, PREPARE and PETRA. He also worked for the development of a Microwave-Photonic Dual Band Radar (DBR) and a fiber based distributed RADARCOM network, a photonic receiver for Electronic Spectrum Measurement (ESM) and SIGnal INTelligence (SIGINT) in close collaboration with national and international companies, research bodies and DoD. His main activities are in the area of research and development of Radar systems with more than seven years’ experience in system design, system engineering hands-on capability, including system and structural design, field test and calibration.
