Antonia Maria Tulino

Antonia M. Tulino is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Telecommunications Engineering at the Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II” since 2002. Currently she is with the Department of Wireless Communications at Bell Bell Laboratories, Holmdel, NJ, U.S.A. In 1998 she was Visiting Scholar at the department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Rice University (collaborating with Prof. B. Aazhang). After finishing her doctorate in the Electrical Engineering department (Seconda Università degli Studi di Napoli) in January 1999 with the Dissertation: “Interference Suppression in CDMA Systems” (advisor: Prof. L. Paura), she held a research position at the Center for Wireless Communications, Oulu, Finland.  From 2001 to 2002, she served as Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Engineering, Università degli Studi del Sannio, Benevento, Italy. Starting from 2000 she has been periodically appointed as Visiting Research Fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University (collaborating with Prof. S. Verdú)

Antonia Tulino was elected Senior member of the IEEE in 2002. She received the 2009 Stephen O. Rice Prize in the Field of Communications Theory, the best paper award at 9th International Symposium on Spread Spectrum Techniques and Applications, Manaus, Brazil, Aug. 28-31, 2006, the best paper award at 2001 Int. Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications, Aalborg, Denmark, September 2001.

She has co-authored several papers on IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, IEEE Transactions on Communications and IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, several papers presented at International Conferences and several book chapters.
In 2004, she co-authored with Sergio Verdú the monograph ``Random Matrices and Wireless Communications,” which gives a comprehensive account of the asymptotic theory of the spectral distribution of random matrices and its applications to information theory and signal processing. This monograph shows the nice interplay between random matrix theory and wireless communications: existing mathematical results are very relevant to the analysis of the spectral efficiency of wireless channels, and conversely, information/communication theoretic insights can be used to enhance insight into the structure of the solution of open problems in asymptotic analysis of random matrices. Not only does this monograph overview in detail and depth classical and recent developments in random matrix theory, with focus on wireless systems applications, but it provides a reader-friendly viewpoint which is of great help in applying this important theory.

Professor Tulino's research interests lie in the broad area of communication systems approached with the complementary tools provided by signal processing, information theory and random matrix theory.
