Degree in Electrical Engineering with 110/110 cum laude at Padua University in 1979
Master in Business Administration at CUOA in 1986
PhD in Electrical Sciences in Rome in 1987.

Professor of Electrical Engineering since October 2003 and of History of Technology since 2007 at Padua University.

He has worked to the Eta Beta II and RFX projects on controlled thermonuclear fusion in magnetic confinement, developed in Padua in collaboration with English, Irish, Swedish, US, and Japanese research centers. He was engaged in studying and designing the magnetic configurations of these devices, for which he conceived ad-hoc numerical tools, able to simulate the operation and performance of the magnetic systems. He was also committed at managing the contracts for the manufacture of the devices’ inductors. He also worked on the design and manufacturing of their power supplies, and of their measurement, monitoring and protection systems, conceiving and defining original solutions and technologies. He studied the magnetic configurations, which provide the plasma equilibrium and stability, in order to identify good plasma performance and confinement.
He has largely studied computational methods for electromagnetic coupled and myltiphysic problems, which are used in both the industrial and biomedical fields. A part of this research regards the development of formulations involving also fluid dynamics, which must be considered in a number a energy-related electromagnetic problems. He has studied numerical models for electrical systems based on fuel cells, developing procedure for simulating their multi-physical performance, which can be applied to the definition of optimized industrial solutions.
He directed a number of sub-programs within several National Interest Research Programs (PRINs) in the years 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 (in this case as the deputy-coordinator).
He has also been responsible for some projects funded by the University of Padua and Regione Veneto. He is leading a research unit working inside a Strategic Project 2011, i.e. the most-funded and competitive research program supported by the University of Padua (Euro 810.000).
He has been a visiting researcher at the laboratories at UKAEA Culham (UK) and General Dynamics in San Diego (USA).
He co-chaired the XII International Symposium on Polymer Electrolytes in 2010, and chaired some international workshops and invited sessions within the international conferences Coupled Problems 2009, 2011, and 2013, and the 11th Biennial Conference on Engineering System Design and Simulation.
He was appointment to teach in the Italian National Doctorate School in Electrical Engineering "F. Gasparini" in 2008.

He authored over 220 scientific publications, mostly peer-reviewed international journal papers and conference proceedings, including over thirty books on electromagnetism, electrical networks, electrical technologies and history of technology, some being adopted in other Italian universities.

He is a columnist and a member of the editorial board of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine. He is the official representative of the University of Padua in N.ERGHY, the association that represents the European universities and research institutions within the UE Joint Undertaking on Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH-JU), that will coordinated the European researches in this field in the period 2014–2020 providing funds for 1,300 M€.

Formulazioni numeriche bidimensionali e tridimensionali per l'elettromagnetismo quasi-stazionario.
Formulazioni numeriche e modelli per problemi elettromagnetici accoppiati - problemi multifisici.
Le indagini riguardano lo sviluppo di formulazioni finite innovative applicate nell'ambito dei problemi accoppiati. Tali metodologie trovano applicazione in ambito industriale (analisi numeriche del comportamento elettro-termico di materiali e componenti).
Vengono anche sviluppate formulazioni che, in un più ampio contesto tecnologico, coinvolgono aspetti meccanici, elettrochimici e fluidodinamici e si inquadrano pertanto in uno studio tipicamente multisettoriale (formulazioni multiphysics). Sono utilizzate per realizzare modelli per sistemi di generazione elettrica e di accumulo energetico basati sulle fonti di energia innovative.In particolare sono studiati i sistemi di alimentazione basati sulle celle a combustibile. I modelli vengono usati nella definizione ed ottimizzazione di configurazioni industrializzabili basate su materiali innovativi.
Dirige il Laboratorio Celle a Combustibile, ove sono svolte attività di sviluppo tecnologico sia sugli stack di celle a combustibile che sui sistemi di test e collaudo per gli stack stessi. Queste attività sperimentali sono anche usate per la validazione dei modelli numerici originali sviluppati dal gruppo di ricerca.

Nell'Electrochemical Energy Storage Laboratory vengono studiate Celle a Combustibile e Batterie a Flusso. In particolare vengono sviluppate betterie a flusso innovative e vengono eseguiti test e collaudi su celle a combustibile.

Nel Laboratori di Elettrotecnica Computazionale vengono studiati i modelli numerici per problemi elettromagnetici accoppiati e all'accumulo energetico di tipo elettrochimico in genere (per impieghi stazionari e mobili).
