Gabriella Bosco received the Ph.D. degree in electronic and communication engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 2002. In 2000, she was a Visiting Researcher with the University of California at Santa Barbara in the research group directed by Prof. Blumenthal, working on performance monitoring techniques for optical systems. From 1998 to 2011, she held a Postdoctoral position in the OptCom Group at Politecnico di Torino, where she worked as an Assistant Professor from 2011 to 2014. She currently is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications and an elected member of the Academic Senate of Politecnico di Torino. Her main research interests include the performance analysis and design of optical transmission systems and the application of digital signal processing and advanced modulation techniques in optical links.
