Curriculum vitae

Biographic notes

Born in Bologna, Italy, in October 1948, he received the Ms Degree (laurea cum laude) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna in July 1972.

Soon afterwards he started his academic career at the Institute of Electronics (later on, since 1985, Department of Electronics, Computer Engineering and Systems Science (DEIS)) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Bologna, where he was first Assistant Professor of Industrial Electronics and then, from 1980, Associate Professor of Digital Systems Design.

In 1977 and 1978, thanks to a grant first by the Italian Research Council and then by NATO, he spent two semesters at the Polytechnic of Central London, carrying out both research and didactic activities.

Full Professor since 1990, he was called to the chair of Applied Electronics by the University of Perugia and in 1993 by the University of Ferrara. He newly joined DEIS at the University of Bologna in 1994.

He ha been member of the PhD School in Computer Science and Engineering at the U niversity of Bologna from 1983 till 2007, Director of the Computer Centre of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Bologna from 1997 till 2001, and Chairman of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Courses on Computer Engineering at the 1st Faculty of Engineering of the University of Bologna from 2001 till 2007.

Teaching activity

Since 1976 he has been lecturer of academic courses in Electronics and Computer Engineering. Namely, Applied Statistics, Industrial Electronics, Applied Electronics, Logic Design, Computer Architectures, Software Engineering, Computer Networks. Currently he is teaching two postgraduate courses at the 1st Faculty of Engineering of the University of Bologna: “Digital Systems” and “Real-Time Systems”.

He has been also involved in many didactic activities promoted by public Institutions and private Companies (Scuola superiore Reiss Romoli, SNAM Progetti, ENI, Regione Emilia-Romagna, Sogesta, EnAIP, IFOA, AEI, ASTER, IMA, G.D, SACMI, CRIT), regarding advanced design methodologies of digital systems, microprocessor control of inverter-fed motor drives, high-performance multiprocessor architectures, embedded real-time control systems of automated machines, robotics and industrial automation.

Research activity

His research activity, documented in more than 80 papers published on International Journals and Conference Proceedings, has first dealt with:

  • local area networks for real-time applications;
  • architectural and design issues on optimal management of photovoltaic systems;
  • high-performance PWM techniques for m P-controlled inverter-fed ac motor drives;
  • computational architectures for high-dexterity robotic hands;
  • neural computational models for robotic haptic recognition of 3-D objects.

At present his research activity is mainly concerned with:

  • advanced techniques for efficient handling of certificates within public-key infrastructures;
  • hw-sw codesign of real-time embedded systems for industrial automation applications.
