SHORT BIO: Francesco A. N. Palmieri received his Laurea in Ingegneria Elettronica cum laude from Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy, in October 1980.  From October  1980 to March 1982, he served as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Italian Army in fulfillment of draft duties. In 1982 and 1983, he was with the ITT firms: FACE SUD Selettronica in Salerno (currently Alcatel), Italy, and Bell Telephone Manufacturing Company in Antwerpen, Belgium, as a designer of digital telephone systems. In 1983, he was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to conduct graduate studies at the University of Delaware, Newark, where he received a M.S. degree in applied sciences and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 1985 and 1987, respectively. He was appointed Assistant Professor in Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, in 1987, where he was awarded tenure and promotion to associate professor in 1993. In the same year, after a national competition, he was awarded the position of Professore Associato at the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettronica e delle Telecomunicazioni at Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy, where he has been until October 2000. In February 2000, he was nominated Professore Ordinario di Telecomunicazioni after a national competition and appointed in November 2000 at Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione, Seconda Università di Napoli (now Università degli Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli), Aversa, Italy. He is also a Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, USA.  His research interests are in the areas of signal processing, communications, information theory, neural networks, Bayesian models and graphical models.
