Curriculum vitae

Marco Breschi graduated with honors in electrical engineering from the University of Bologna in July 1997. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in March 2001 with a study on the electrodynamics of superconducting magnets at the LHC Division of CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Since October 2001 he is assistant professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Bologna. His research activity is related to various aspects of applied superconductivity and the numerical computation of electromagnetic fields. He developed multiphysics models for superconducting wires, cables and magnets, concerning various aspects of the electromagnetic, thermal, and mechanical phenomena of interest for technical applications. In particular, he has applied these models to the analysis of superconducting magnets for particle accelerators and controlled thermonuclear fusion. In 2004 he worked as a visiting scientist at the NHMFL (National High Magnetic Field Laboratory), Florida, United States. He is an independent member of the Working Group SULTAN of ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), an international group comprising one representative from each nation participating to the project (China,  European Union, United States, India, Japan, Russian Federation, South Korea) and three independent members (from CERN, University of Twente and University of Bologna). The aim of the group is the performance analysis of the superconducting cables for the ITER Project. Since 2007, he coordinated several research projects concerning the analysis of the electrodynamic, electrothermal, and eletromechanical phenomena occurring in the superconducting cables and magnets for the ITER Project. He served the Scientific Community as an Associate Editor for the Journal IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity and as a member of the Scientific Program Committee of the International Conference on Magnet Technology (MT22, Marseille, France, 2011, and MT23, Boston, USA, 2013). He is the Chairman of the International Organizing Committee of the CHATS-AS Workshop, concerning numerical computation of superconducting cables and magnets. He is member of the International Organizing Committee of the Workshop ‘Magnetic and Superconductive Materials' in the frame of the International Conference on Composites/Nano Engineering and member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Electromagnetic Analysis and Applications (JEMAA).
