Lorenzo Bruzzone (S’95–M’98–SM’03–F’10) received the Laurea (M.S.) degree in electronic engineering (summa cum laude) and the Ph.D. degree in telecommunications from the University of Genoa, Italy, in 1993 and 1998, respectively.
He is currently a Full Professor of telecommunications at the University of Trento, Italy, where he teaches remote sensing, radar, and digital communications. Dr. Bruzzone is the founder and the director of the Remote Sensing Laboratory in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento. His current research interests are in the areas of remote sensing, radar and SAR, signal processing, and pattern recognition. He promotes and supervises research on these topics within the frameworks of many national and international projects. He is the Principal Investigator of many research projects. Among the others, he is the Principal Investigator of the Radar for icy Moon exploration (RIME) instrument in the framework of the JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) mission of the European Space Agency. He is the author (or coauthor) of 193 scientific publications in referred international journals (139 in IEEE journals), more than 260 papers in conference proceedings, and 21 book chapters. He is editor/co-editor of 18 books/conference proceedings and 1 scientific book. His papers are highly cited, as proven form the total number of citations (more than 18900) and the value of the h-index (69) (source: Google Scholar). He was invited as keynote speaker in many international conferences and workshops.
Dr. Bruzzone ranked first place in the Student Prize Paper Competition of the 1998 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (Seattle, July 1998). Since that time he was recipient of many international and national honors and awards, including the recent IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society 2015 Outstanding Service Award. In the past years joint papers presented by his students at international symposia and Master/PhD theses that he supervised have received awards. Dr. Bruzzone is the co-founder of the IEEE International Workshop on the Analysis of Multi-Temporal Remote-Sensing Images (MultiTemp) series and is currently a member of the Permanent Steering Committee of this series of workshops. Since 2003 he has been the Chair of the SPIE Conference on Image and Signal Processing for Remote Sensing. He was a Guest Co-Editor of many Special Issues of international journals. From 2010 to 2012 he was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Newsletter. Since 2013 he has been the founder Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine. From 2004 to 2006 he served as an Associated Editor of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters. Currently he is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing. Since 2012 he has been appointed Distinguished Speaker of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society.
