Sergio Pinna was born in Ozieri (Sardinia, Italy) in 1982. He received the bachelor's degree, defending a thesis on "signal processing for biomedical applications" and the master's degree, defending a thesis on "tracking algorithms for airborne radars", in telecommunication engineering from University of Pisa, respectively in 2008 and 2010. His academic background is mainly focused on digital and stochastic signal processing, digital and mobile communications and information theory.
He is currently Ph.D. student in "Innovative technologies of information and communication engineering and robotics" at the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (SSSA) in Pisa and scholarship holder at Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni (CNIT) also in Pisa. He is currently member of the SSSA/CNIT's Digital and Microwave Photonics group lead by Ph.D. Eng. Antonella Bogoni. His research topic is mainly focused on all-optical signal processing for digital communication systems (all-optical modulation-format conversion, all-optical multiplexing techniques, all-optical complex modulation-format and Optical comb generation) and Microwave Photonics (photonic assisted microwave transceivers and Analog to Digital Conversion (ADC)).
