Rocco D’Ingillo was born in Bitonto (Bari, Italy) on the 22nd May 1991. He received the Bachelor in Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering in Politecnico di Bari in 2017. He moved in Politecnico di Torino in October 2017 to start a M.Sc. in Microelectronics program. He received the Master Degree (with honors) in Electronic Engineering in Politecnico di Torino in October 2021 with a thesis about modeling of ultra wideband (UWB) coherent transceivers and ROADMs for open networking applications.

Since November 2021, he is a PhD candidate in Politecnico di Torino in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering in the team PLANET within the Optical Communication (OptCom) group.

The research activity is about modeling and characterization of UWB coherent transceivers and photonic integrated circuits (PICs) focusing on Indium Phosphide (InP) application for novel Mach-Zehnder electro-optical modulators (MZM) development and application in optical networks. Other research activity are related to ROADMs characterization and control for multivendor optical networks optimization and management.

He collaborates with Lumentum Company in Milan and with LINKS foundation laboratories.
