Simone Milani received his Laurea Degree (5 years course) with honors from the University of Padova, Italy, on December 2002. In 2003 he won a research scholarship within the MiUR project FIRB PRIMO to investigate about the topic "Rate Control algorithms for the H.264/AVC coder". In 2004 he was enrolled in the Ph.D. course in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering at the Department of Information Engineering (DEI) of the University of Padova under the supervision of G. A. Mian. His research was focused on video source coding and video transmission over lossy networks. He also collaborated with STMicroelectronics, Agrate Brianza (MI), Italy, investigating optimization algorithms for the H.264/AVC coder. On August 2005 he joined the "Education Abroad Program" of the University of California and spent ten months at the University of California - Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA. In this period, he joined the research group of prof. K. Ramchandran and worked on Distributed Source Coding applied to robust vide o transmission. On December 2006 he finished his Ph.D. course, and he started working with prof. G. Calvagno within the PRIN project 2005 "Reliable Multimedia Transmission over non-Reliable Networks" in collaboration with the University of Udine, Italy, and the University of Genova, Italy. On August 2007, he won a position as research associate at the University of Udine, Udine, Italy, for the research project "Robust transmission using cross-packet FEC coding", which concluded the PRIN 2005 work. He was enrolled at the University of Udine until December 2007 working with prof. Roberto Rinaldo and dott. Riccardo Bernardini on cross-layer optimization strategies for the video transmission over IEEE 802.11e networks. In 2008, he was enrolled as research associate at the University of Padova within the research project "Analysis and implementation of a scalable video coder for transmission over heterogeneous unreliable networks based on distributed coding principles" under the supervision of prof. Giancarlo Calvagno.


From 2011 to now, he has been working at the Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy within the EU project REWIND. His main research topics are digital signal processing, source coding, joint source-channel coding, robust video transmission over lossy packet networks, distributed source coding, 3D video coding and processing, multimedia forensics. He is also a IEEE member of Information Theory and Signal Processing Societies and he has also been a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, International Journal of Digital Multimedia Broadcasting, EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing, Recent Patents on Computer Science, and several other international conferences.


He also taught lab exercise sessions for the Digital Signal Processing course with prof. G.A. Mian (Autumn 2004) and prof. G.M. Cortelazzo (Autumn 2006).


He lectures the PhD course " Applications of Game Theory to Communications and other distributed problems" at the Politecnico di Milano.
