Short biography

Antonella Ragusa received the degree in Electrical Engineering with honours from the University of Palermo in 2001; in 2006 at the same University, she received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering developing her research activity within the group of Converters, Electrical Machines and Drives at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Palermo, within the Institute on Intelligent System for Automation (ISSIA), now Institute of Marine Engineering (INM) of the National Research Council (CNR) and within the ELASIS-FIAT. From the November 2006 to December 2007 she worked as consultant at FIAT GROUP AUTOMOBILES (Turin) within the group of Engineering & Design on topics related to Virtual Analysis of Body Electronics. Since January 2008 she has been a permanent researcher at the Institute of Marine Engineering (INM), of CNR. She serves as reviewer for international conferences and journals.

She is currently a Marie Curie Research Fellow (MSCA-IF) at De Montfort University of Leicester, United Kingdom.
