Fulvio Babich was born in Trieste, Italy, on 5 April 1959. He received the doctoral degree, (Laurea), cum laude, in Electrical Engineering, at the University of Trieste, on July 1984, discussing the thesis "Attenuation and dispersion of single-mode fibers for telecommunications".

From 1984 to 1987 he was with Telettra, at the Research and Development laboratories of Vimercate (Milan), where he was involved in the field of high-speed optical communications. In 1987 he joined Zeltron (Udine, Italy), where he contributed at the European projects for the definition of the architectural matters of the European Home Systems (EHS) specification.

In 1992 he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering (DEEI) of the University of Trieste where he is Professor of Wireless Networks. Fulvio Babich is vice Director of the Department of Engineering and Architecture, and the coordinator of the Industrial and Information Engineering Doctorate of the University of Trieste.

Fulvio Babich has served as co-chair for the Communication Theory Symposium, ICC 2005, Seul, for the Wireless Communication Symposium, ICC 2011, Kyoto, for the Wireless Communication Symposium, WCSP 2012, Huangshan, China, for the Communication Theory Symposium, ICC 2014 Sidney, and ICC 2017, Paris. He has been general chair of IEEE Med-Hoc-Net 2014, Piran, Slovenia.

He is Senior Member of IEEE.
