Andrea Monti Guarnieri, associate professor at Politecnico di Milano (Poli-MI), M.Sc. cum laude (1988) in electronic engineering, IEEE-member. He joined the Department of Electronics and Information, first as ph.d. student, and from 1991 as an assistant professor, then associate professor (2002), teaching digital and statistical signal processing, telecommunications and RADAR systems and processing.
Twenty years of professional activities in Synthetic Aperture RADAR systems design and processing, led him in 2003 to co-found Aresys, a Poli-MI spin-off, he currently serves as president. Aresys has a strong expertise in geophysical processing, in the design and calibration of space-borne SAR systems and in providing customized solutions for remote sensing involving RADAR and GPR. His current interests involve RADAR systems focusing on the calibration, the development of new technologies, and the research for innovative applications.
He has been leading ESA projects since fifteen years, he is a member of the ESA Quality Working Group since 2002, while the GeoSARLabs that he coordinates at Poli-MI are qualified by ESA as “Expert Support Laboratories”.
Presently he is involved in research project for the argentinean space agency (CONAE) to support the next SAOCOM constellation, for national gas company, ENI, to develop a remote vibration monitoring for gas-pipes, and in the design of an innovative geosynchronous SAR.
Prof. Monti Guarnieri co-authored nearly 150 scientific publications, of which 40 international peer reviewed publications, (H-Index 19, 1600 citations); he was awarded three “Best Paper” in international symposia (IGARSS '89, EUSAR 2004, EUSAR 2012) and he is co-author of three patents.
He is reviewer of journals in remote sensing, signal processing, image processing and antennas and propagations, and he has been in many technical boards of SAR and RADAR conferences.
