Biography


Roberto Francescon earned his Telecommunications Engineering degree from the University of Padova in 2015. His Master thesis involved the design of a real-time scheme for the analysis and compression of biological signals from external sensors, such as ECG and PPG signals. He worked on Vector Quantization, Motif extraction, and  Machine Learning techniques for the understandig of the signal evolution over time. Roberto got involved in the Underwater communications field after his graduation, by developing software modules for the DESERT Underwater framework at the SIGNET Lab (DEI), University of Padova, as a research engineer. He joined many sea trials with the NATO STO CMRE (La Spezia, Italy) and EvoLogics GmbH (Berlin, Germany). He also collaborated to programming the framework that will run on the THEMO marine observatory, off the coast of Israel. His current work involves software development for the DESERT Underwater framework, and the development of new communication protocols and schemes for underwater networks.
