Gianluigi Liva was born in Spilimbergo, Italy, on July 23rd, 1977. He received the M.S. and the Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2002 and 2006, respectively. Since 2003 he has been investigating channel codes for high data rate CCSDS (Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems) missions, in collaboration with the European Space Operations Centre of the European Space Agency (ESA-ESOC). In 2004-2005 he was researching at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where he was designing low-complexity error correcting codes for space communications.

Since 2006 he is with the Institute of Communications and Navigation at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), where he currently leads the Information Transmission group. In 2010 he has been appointed lecturer for channel coding at the Institute for Communications Engineering (LNT), Technische Universität München (TUM). In 2012 and 2013 he has been lecturing for channel coding at the Nanjing University of Science and Technology (China). Since 2014 he is lecturer for channel codes with iterative decoding at the Institute for Communications Engineering (LNT), Technische Universität München (TUM).

His main research interests include satellite communications, random access techniques and error control coding. He is/has been active in the DVB-SH, DVB-RCS and DVB-S2 standardization groups, as well as in the standardization of error correcting codes for deep-space communications within the CCSDS.
