Giacomo Borraccini received the Master Degree in Electronic Engineering in Politecnico di Torino in October 2019 cum Laude with a thesis about Raman gain optimization in multi-band optical transmission.

Since November 2019, he is a Ph.D. candidate at Politecnico di Torino in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering in the team PLANET within the Optical Communication (OptCom) group.

The research activity is focused on the development of methodologies and algorithms that allow to automate and make an open optical network cognitive, aiming at maximizing capacity through the optimization of transmission quality. The topics covered include: the definition of automatic procedures for the characterization of the physical layer, the management and optimization of multi-band amplification systems (EDFA and Raman amplifiers) using analytical models, artificial intelligence and optimization algorithms.

He collaborates with Cisco Photonics and LINKS foundation laboratories. Since June 2020, he has actively contributed to the development of the GNPy scientific library within the Telecom Infra Project (PSE working group).

In the year 2021, he held the position of president of the Optica Student Chapter Torino.
