CV Teaching
Paolo Monti received a Laurea degree in Electrical Engineering (2001) from the Politecnico di Torino, Italy, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (2005) from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). From 2006 to 2008 he worked as a Research Associate of the Open Networking Advance Research (OpNeAR) Lab at UTD. He  joined the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in September 2008 where he is currently an Associate Professor and Docent in the School of Information and Communication Technology (ICT-COS) and the deputy director of the Optical Networks Laboratory (ONLab). He published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences. Dr. Monti is serving on the editorial boards of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications - Series on Green Communications and Networking and of the Springer Photonic Network Communications journal. He was one of the Guest Editors of the Special Issue on “Green Networking and Computing” of the Journal of High Speed Networks, and he is the leading editor of two special issues of the Springer Photonic Network Communications journal, one on "Green Optical Networks" and one on "Optical Networks Design". Dr. Monti regularly participates in several TPCs including IEEE Globecom and ICC. He also co-Chaired, among others, one workshop on network survivability (at ICC 2012) and three workshops on green broadband access (at ICC 2013, Globecom 2014 and ICC 2015). Dr. Monti was also the TPC chair of IEEE ONDM 2014 and served as a TPC co-chair for the Symposium on Optical and Grid Computing in IEEE ICNC 2014,  IEEE ICNC 2016, and IEEE ICNC 2017. His main research interests are within the networking aspects of all-optical networks (i.e., covering both data and control plane), with a particular focus on energy efficiency. Recently he started working on optical transport solutions for next generation 5G networks. Dr. Monti is a Senior Member of IEEE.
