Massimo Battaglioni received a Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering in 2013, a Laurea Magistrale degree in Electronic Engineering (summa cum laude) in 2015 and a PhD in Information Engineering (final grade: Outstanding) in 2019, with a thesis entitled “Design and analysis of spatially coupled LDPC convolutional codes”, by Marche Polytechnic University. He received the “Doctor Europaeus certificate” in addition to the doctorate degree. Since 2019 he is a postdoctoral researcher in Information Engineering at the Department of Information Engineering of Marche Polytechnic University.
He has been co-chair of the special session “Recent Advances in Coding Theory and its Applications” at AEIT 2019 International Annual Conference.
In 2017 he has been a visiting student at the Electrical and Information Technology Department, LTH, Lund University, Sweden. In 2018 he has been a visiting student at the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA and at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University College Dublin, Ireland.
He received the GTTI PhD award for PhD Theses in the field of Communication Technologies for the year 2019. He serves as Associate Editor for IEEE Communications Letters. He has served and serves as a reviewer for many international journals and conferences. He received the IEEE Communications Letters Exemplary Reviewer award for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020, the IEEE Communication Letters Exemplary Editor award for the year 2021, and the IEEE Transaction on Communications Exemplary Reviewer for the year 2019.
His research activity is focused on coding techniques for communications reliability, cryptography and distributed ledger technologies, with particular attention to block and convolutional LDPC codes for symmetric and asymmetric channels and their application to cryptography and blockchain. He is also interested in cyber risk assessment methods
