Who we are

Ennio Gambi, Associate Professor in Telecommunications
Ennio Gambi was born in Loreto (Ancona, Italy) in 1961. He received the Electronic Engineering graduate diploma at the Università Politecnica delle Marche in 1986 and the Microwave Engineering master degree in 1989.
From 1984 to 1992 he worked with the Azienda di Stato per i Servizi Telefonici, while during 1988 he covered the role of Avionic Engineer as an Official of the Italian Military Air Force. Since 1992 he joined the Università Politecnica delle Marche in Ancona, where he is, currently, an Associate Professor.
Its main research interest is currently focused on the applications of millimeter-wave radars, with particular attention to automotive-based radars. At the same time, he is interested on the analysis of radar and video acquisitions of subjects finalized at the extraction of vital parameters, through the implementation of machine learning algorithms. For a long time he has dealt with home automation systems, and on their evolution towards the Environment Assisted Living.

He is coauthor of several international papers.
He is the lecturer for the courses of Wireless Communications and Telecommunication Technologies of the Università Politecnica delle Marche.

He is a founding member of ArieLAB and Tech4care, two Italian SMEs, spinoff of the Università Politecnica delle Marche, principally devoted to the development of innovative technologies.

His family is composed by his wife Rossana and their daughters Emma and Anita.

Linda Senigagliesi, PostDoc Researcher
Linda Senigagliesi received a B.Sc. degree and a M.Sc. degree in Electronic Engineering by Università Politecnica delle Marche (Ancona, Italy), in 2013 and 2015 respectively. She received a PhD in Information Engineering by the same university in 2019, with a thesis entitled “Information-theoretic security techniques for data communications and storage". She also received the “Doctor Europaeus certificate” in addition to the doctorate degree. In 2017 and 2018 she has been a visiting student at the Electrical Engineering Department of Chalmers University of Technology, Goteborg, Sweden.
Since 2019 she is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Information Engineering of Università Politecnica delle Marche. Her main research interests include information-theory and physical layer security, with application to distributed storage systems and wireless communications. Her activity is focused on machine learning techniques for physical layer authentication and privacy.

Antonio Nocera, Ph.D Student
Antonio Nocera graduated in the bachelor of Biomedical Engineering in December 2020 with a thesis regarding machine learning for the estimation of muscle onset activation in the electromyography signal. Then, he graduated in the master's degree of Biomedical Engineering in July 2022 with a thesis titled "Bioengineering of sport: American Football", where the electrocardiographic signal of a group of american football players was recorded with a chest strap to monitor parameters of heart rate variability through symbolic analysis. Since November 2022 he is a PhD fellow at the department of Information Engineering (DII) with topics embracing the monitoring of human physiological and behavioural parameters from wearable, portable and environmental sensors.
Currently, his main research interests include the acquisition and the analysis of biomedical signal extracted from contactless sensors, such as automotive mmWave radars and/or RGB-D cameras.

Michela Raimondi, Ph.D Student
Raimondi Michela graduated with a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in the a/a 2020/2021 with a thesis entitled 'Synthesis of optimal current distributions for monopulse radar applications'. She received a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in the a/a 2022/2023 with a thesis entitled 'Study of radar signals for people detection and tracking', also focusing on the study of machine learning applied to radar images. PhD students since November 2023 at the Department of Information Engineering (UnivPM, Ancona)
