Award for the Best Doctoral Thesis in Electromagnetism achieved at a public university member of the CNIT (2023 Edition)
The Evaluation Commission evaluated the received applications received and declared Dr. Giulio Maria Bianco the winner of the Award for the Best Doctoral Thesis in Electromagnetism achieved at a public university member of the CNIT (2023 Edition).
The winner obtained his Doctorate from the University of Rome Tor Vergata and proposed for evaluation his doctoral thesis in the course “Computer Science, Control and GeoInformation” entitled “Devices and methods for local- and remote-processing bodycentric internet of things systems”.
Dr. Bianco’s doctoral thesis investigated Internet of Things systems operating in proximity to the human body through a holistic approach, selecting two innovative case studies to outline similarities and differences of the systems belonging to the broad category under examination. The case studies involved the design and testing of systems using RFID or LoRa technology and short- and long-range signal transmission, respectively. In addition to having proposed and tested innovative devices to assist visually impaired people and search and rescue operations in mountain environments, he paid particular attention to inter- and intra-personal variability, which have different effects on radio connections depending on the type of system.
The results of the research activity have been published in prestigious international journals, including the IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks, IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine, and IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.
