Congratulations to Marco Ruffini, CONNECT Funded Investigator and Assistant Professor in Trinity College Dublin, who has been elected a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin.

Research achievement of a high order is the primary qualification for Fellowship, coupled with evidence of a candidate’s contribution to the academic life of Trinity College Dublin and an effective record in teaching.

Congratulating Marco, Prof. Luiz DaSilva, CONNECT Director, said “This is a well-deserved recognition of Marco’s contribution to Trinity’s reputation for world class teaching and research. Telecommunications is one of Trinity’s research themes, and Marco is rapidly establishing a reputation as a world leader in the area of fiber broadband research.”

Marco’s research focuses on flexible high-capacity fiber broadband architectures, next generation PON testbeds, Software Defined Access Networks, and access network virtualization. He is currently leading a €1 million telecoms research project, OSHARE, which explores ways of improving the capacity of optical networks to cope with the surges in demand.

Dr Ruffini is a native of Ancona in Italy. He completed his undergraduate degree in Marche Polytechnic University in 2002. He then worked with Philips R&D, before completing his doctorate degree in Trinity College.
