Curriculum vitae

Roberto Tinarelli was born in Bologna on March, 21st, 1974.

On February, 16th, 2000, he received  a master degree in Electrical Engineering (100/100) from the University of Bologna by discussing the thesis entitled "Development and calibration of a programmable system for power quality measurement"(supervisor Prof. Renato Sasdelli, correlators Prof. Domenico Mirri, Prof. Lorenzo Peretto).

In March of that year he started a four-months  collaboration with the Department of Electrical Engineering of the same University aimed at the implementation and validation of codes for the analysis of quasi - periodic signal (scientific responsible Prof. Renato Sasdelli).

In the first session of the year 2000 he obtained the qualification to practice the profession of engineer.

On September 28th, 2000 he was called up for military service at the Public Relations Department of the Policlinico S. Orsola - Malpighi in Bologna but on March, 15th, 2001 is placed on leave in advance for scientific merits.

In January 2001, Ing. Tinarelli won the competition for admission to the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the Polytechnic of Milano. Therefore, from 2001 to 2004 he followed the three-year PhD School (XVI cycle) at the Department of Electrical Engineering of that University and developed the research activities in the field of Electrical Measurement and, in particular, the study and the metrological characterization of methods for the analysis of non-periodic signals. This activity was carried out in close collaboration with the research units of the University of Bologna( led by Prof. Renato Sasdelli first and then by Prof. Lorenzo Peretto) and the Polytechnic of Milan, led by Prof. Alessandro Ferrero. On May 10th, 2004, he obtained, with honors, the title of Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering by discussing the thesis entitled "Analysis of discrete and continuous-spectrum non-periodic signals: uncertainty evaluation and characterization of the Metrological Instruments"

In September 2002 he won a  two-year  position as temporary researcher launched by the Department of Electrical Engineering of University of Bologna for working  in the research project "A System for the  measurement of electromagnetic pollution in an industrial environment." The research grant was renewed for the years 2004 - 2006 with the title "Measurement systems based on DSP distributed architecture for the measurement of electromagnetic fields: new acquisition system and performance analysis."

In October 2006 he won a two-year PostDoc position launched by a the University of Bologna for a project entitled "Design, development and metrological characterization of smart sensors for the measurement of electromagnetic quantities in power system distribution networks."

In 2009 and in 2010 he won the application of the Faculty of Engineering of the  University of Bologna for the appointment of adjunct professor for the course "Measurement and Testing of Electrical Machines and Systems" (master degree in Electrical Engineering)

In May 2010 he became Assistant Professor in  "Electrical and Electronic Measurement"  and  on  October, 1st  of the same year he joint with the Department of Electrical Engineering of University of Bologna.

In December 2013 he got the National Qualification as Associate Professor of Electrical and Electronic Measureuments

Since 2001 he is member of IEEE as well as IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society. Since 2008 he is also a member of the IEEE IMS TC39 "Measurements on Power Systems".  In 2013 he is nominated one of the "Outstanding Reviewers" of that year by the journal IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement.  In 2014 he is elevated to the IEEE Senior Member grade.  It 's also a member from the foundation of the Italian Electrical and Electronic Measurement Association (GMEE).

   He is regular reviewer for the journal "IEEE Transaction on Instrumentation & Measurement”. Moreover, he  is author or coauthor of more than 100 scientific publications and co-inventor of several international patents.
