Lorenzo Bruzzone 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 his currently a Full Professor of telecommunications at the University of Trento, Italy, where he teaches remote sensing, radar, pattern recognition, and electrical 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 several national and international projects. He is the author (or coauthor) of 114 scientific publications in referred international journals (76 in IEEE journals), more than 170 papers in conference proceedings, and 16 book chapters. He is editor/co-editor of 10 books/conference proceedings and 1 scientific book. He has served on the Scientific Committees of several international conferences and was invited as keynote speaker in more than 20 international conferences and workshops. He is a member of the Managing Committee of the Italian Inter-University Consortium on Telecommunications. Since 2009 he is a member of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society.
Dr. Bruzzone ranked first place in the Student Prize Paper Competition of the 1998 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (Seattle, July 1998). He was a recipient of the Recognition of IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING (TGRS) Best Reviewers in 1999 and was a Guest Co-Editor of different Special Issues of international journals. In the past years joint papers presented by his students at international symposia and master theses that he supervised have received international and national awards. He was the General Chair/Co-chair of the First, Second and Sixth IEEE International Workshop on the Analysis of Multi-temporal Remote-Sensing Images (MultiTemp), 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. From 2004 to 2006 he served as an Associated Editor of the IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS, and currently is an Associate Editor for the IEEE TGRS and the CANADIAN JOURNAL OF REMOTE SENSING. Since April 2010 he has been the Editor of the IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING NEWSLETTER. In 2008 he has been appointed as a member of the joint NASA/ESA Science Definition Team for the radar instruments for Outer Planet Flagship Missions. Since 2012 he has been appointed Distinguished Speaker of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society. Dr. Bruzzone is an IEEE Fellow.
