Rodrigo Romero


Rodrigo Romero received his degree in Electronic Engineering from Universidad del Norte in Colombia and  holds a Master in Navigation and Related Applications from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He is currently a PhD student  at Politecnico di Torino as part of the TRANSMIT (Training Research and Applications Network to Support the Mitigation of Ionospheric Threats) project, a Marie Curie Initial Training Network aiming to develop new techniques to detect and monitor ionospheric threats to GNSS. His research activities cover GNSS-Ionosphere related topics: Receiver technologies, signal processing techniques under ionospheric scintillation conditions and estimation of ionospheric scintillation parameters with GNSS receivers. He has contributed to other projects such as  ALCANTARA (a competence survey which aimed to identify currently  available capabilities  to  monitor  the  ionosphere in Latin America, South East Asia and Africa), MISW (Mitigation of space weather threats to GNSS services) and will be part of the official team of the DemoGRAPE project, which will perform empiric validations of the ionospheric delay/corruption in GNSS signals over the polar regions.
