Alessandro Bazzi received the Laurea degree (with honors) and the Ph.D. degree in telecommunications engineering both from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. Since 2002, he joined the research unit of Bologna of the Institute of Electronics, Computer and Telecommunication Engineering (IEIIT) of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR), now holding a permanent position as researcher. He is also with the WiLab group, which involves people from IEIIT-CNR, the Electrical, Electronic, and Information Engineering ”Guglielmo Marconi” Department (DEI) of the University of Bologna, and the Engineering Department (ENDIF) of the University of Ferrara. He is also associated with GTTI and CNIT, and member of IEEE.

His activity is conducted within national and international projects and his research interests include performance investigation through field trials, analysis, and simulation of wireless systems including WLANs, WiMax, cellular technologies, and heterogeneous networks, mainly focusing on medium access control, radio resource management, and routing. His studies also include wireless technologies applied to Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). In his activity, he designed and coordinated the development of a simulation platform for the study of heterogeneous wireless networks (SHINE, simulation platform for heterogeneous interworking networks) and he coordinated a testbed for the investigation of vehicular networks based on short-range wireless communications.

He is author of several publications in the field of wireless systems and networks on international Conference proceedings, Journals and Book chapters (full list here), and he also edited a book entitled Radio Communications. He served as a reviewer and TPC member for various international journals and conferences, and he participated as both a panellist and a moderator of the panel Next Steps for Enhanced Mobility at the IARIA MOBILITY 2012 conference. Part of the editorial board of the Open Journal of Modelling and Simulation (OJMSi) in the period 2013-2016, where he wrote an Editorial on simulations in July 2013. He is currently joining the editorial board of the Hindawi Mobile Information Systems journal.

Since the academic year 2006/2007 he acts as Adjunct Professor, running courses at the University of Bologna or the University of Ferrara, Italy (full list here).
