Beatrice Motella received the Master Degree in Communications Engineering in January 2003 at Politecnico di Torino. In December 2007, she completed the Ph.D. program in Electronics and Communications Engineering at the same university, working in the Navigation Signal Analysis and Simulation (NavSAS) group, under the tutoring of Prof. Letizia Lo Presti. During the Ph.D. program she spent almost one year as a visiting researcher at the Satellite Navigation & Positioning Laboratory (SNAPlab) of the School of Surveying & Spatial Information Systems, at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia.
She is currently a researcher at the Istituto Superiore Mario Boella, working in the GNSS Platforms for Safety and Environment unit, within the Navigation Technologies area.
Her research activities cover different aspects of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) technologies, focusing on the design of algorithms, based on signal processing techniques, able to improve the GNSS receiver performance. Within this sphere, her main research topic is the Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) monitoring for GNSS receivers and local components, specifically designed for Safety-of-life (SoL) applications.
