Ivana Gasulla is a senior researcher (Ramon y Cajal Fellow) and deputy director for Dissemination and Promotion at the ITEAM Research Institute. In 2016, she was awarded a prestigious ERC Consolidator Grant to develop new Space-Division Multiplexing technologies for emergent fiber-wireless communications through the project InnoSpace. Ivana Gasulla received the M.Sc. and the Ph.D. degrees from the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (UPV), Spain, respectively, in 2005 and 2008. Her PhD thesis, focused on broadband radio over multimode fiber transmission, was recognized with the IEEE/LEOS Graduate Student Fellowship Award. In 2012 she was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to carry out research on spatial division multiplexing at Stanford University. Back to ITEAM in 2014, her current research interests encompass the application of multimode and multicore fibers to Microwave Photonics systems. The results of her work have led to more than 100 international publications, highlighting contributions to Nature Communications and Nature Scientific Reports, as well as several invited papers to Nature Photonics. She is a member of the Technical Program Committee of the most prestigious conferences in the field: European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC), Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC) and IEEE International Topical meeting on Microwave Photonics (MWP).
