Curriculum

Danilo Comminiello received the M.Sc. degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 2008 from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. From 2007 to 2008, he was an Intern Service Engineer at Ericsson Telecomunicazioni S.P.A. in Rome, with the Radio Access Network area. In 2008 he undertook the Ph.D. degree in Information and Communication Engineering, accomplished in 2012, with the Department of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications (DIET) at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. During his doctoral and post-doctoral studies, he has collaborated on various research projects with several Italian and foreign companies, some of which, including Fondazione Ugo Bordoni, have contributed to the funding of his studies through research grants. In 2010/2011, he was a Visiting PhD Student with the Department of Signals Theory and Communications of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain, under the supervision of Prof. Jerónimo Arenas-García. From 2012 to 2016, after receiving the PhD degree, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the DIET at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. During this period, he has given several seminar lectures and exercises for the following courses: “Digital Audio Signal Processing”, “Circuits and Algorithms for Signal Processing”, “Adaptive Algorithms and Parallel Computing” and “Neural Networks”.


From November 2016 to November 2019, Danilo Comminiello was a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor, and since November 2019 he is an Associate Professor with the Department of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications (DIET) of Sapienza University of Rome, where he teaches "Machine Learning for Signal Processing" (M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering), "Circuit Theory" and "Programming Laboratory" (B.Sc. in Communications Engineering, in co-teaching with Prof. Michele Scarpiniti). He is a member of the research group of Intelligent Signal Processing and MultiMedia (ISPAMM) with the DIET.


His research interests concern circuits and algorithms for machine learning and artificial intelligence, with focus on audio and biomedical applications. In particular, Danilo Comminiello is active in the research on innovative learning algorithms, which are able to process data autonomously by exploiting the information driven by data. Such methodologies include adaptive algorithms, nonlinear filtering, neural networks and deep learning algorithms, among others.


Danilo Comminiello is the recipient of the Outstanding Reviewer Award for maintaining the prestige of the 44th IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP), Brighton, UK, May 2019. He was also the recipient of the Franco Ferrero award for the best article published in the proceedings of the AISV (Italian Association of Voice Sciences) Conference for two consecutive years in 2012 and 2013. He was also the recipient of the award for the "I Concorso Regionale per Tesi di Laurea e di Dottorato Riservato ai Laureati Lucani 2017" for the best doctoral thesis obtained in the years 2007-2012 by students from Basilicata region.
