Position/Role

Professor in the area of Computing Systems at Politecnico di Milano, delegate for International Relationship with the Far East Asia, Vice-chair for Computer Science and Engineering in the Information Technology PhD Program.

Professional career

After graduating in Electronic Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 1993, pursues a PhD in Automation and Computer Science Engineering in 1997. She became Assistant Professor in 1999, Associate Professor in 2003 and since 2015 is Professor in the area of Computing Systems at Politecnico di Milano.

Since 2016 she is Vice chair for Computer Science and Engineering in the Information Technology PhD Program, and is a member of the Committee since 2014. Since June 2017 she is a rector's delegate for International Relationship with the Far East Asia.

Scientific results

Cristiana Bolchini's scientific profile is two-fold as she started her research career in the Computer Architecture area, working within the field of Embedded System Design and Design Methodologies, and later extending her interests also to the Data Management area, with a focus on context-awareness.

More precisely, her main research activity has always focused on dependability aspects in computing/embedded systems, by defining methodologies and tools to implement and analyse systems able to autonomously detect the occurrence of hardware

faults and possibly tolerate their effects. While in the past this area of research was mainly attractive for highly (safety) critical environments (e.g., space and health), today dependability has become a major challenge also for traditional contexts, because of the pervasiveness of embedded/computing systems, playing an important role, together with performance and power consumption. As such, cutting edge research seeks solutions to implement systems able to autonomously adapt these aspects based on the working context and the requirements. These issues have been the main focus of an European funded project Cristiana Bolchini co-ordinated and successfully concluded in August 2016.

 

Sustainability in energy consumption is the other research area, achieved by monitoring and controlling buildings and managing the collected data, to identify how energy is used towards an increased user awareness, a key element for our society.

Editorial work and publications

She co-authored more than 140 scientific publications, among which:

Professional career

After obtaining a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering in 2007 and a Master's Degree in Environmental and Land Engineering in 2010 at the University of Padua, in the same year she joined as a fellow the Research Institute for Hydrogeological Protection of Padua.. Also at the Research Institute she has been a research fellow since 2013 and at the same time continues her education with a PhD, awarded by the University of Bologna in Civil, Environmental and Materials Engineering in 2015.

 

Scientific results

Giulia Bossi is an expert in land mechanics and landslides. She is involved, among other things, in statistical analysis of the error associated with simplifications of the stratigraphic profile in the numerical model of landslides; simulations of runout for debris flows and rock avalanches, with reconstruction of the dynamics of past events and risk scenarios; the study of possible mitigation interventions for landslides; finally, analysis of slope stability, landslide monitoring data and risk quantification. During the PhD she developed a research in which she shew a new approach in geotechnical modeling that is based on the stochastic generation of different distributions of soil layers, according to a Boolean logic. This method has been applied to the analysis of stability of landslides in two-dimensional and three-dimensional models.

Position/Role

R&D consultant in SEAS-SA - external researcher and lecturer in University of Pavia

Professional career

In the academic year 2001 she obtained a master degree in Civil Engineering, Hydraulic, in the University of Pavia (Italy). In the same university in 2002 she obtained a first level master regarding surface waters defence. Four years later, 2006, she obtained the title of environmental acoustic expert, after a post lauream course organised by F.A.S.T. (Milan- Italy). In 2008 she obtained the energy certificatory qualification. In academic year 2008 she became Philosophy Doctor in technologies for energy and environment (Applied Physics) with a thesis about energetic sustainable buildings (University of Bergamo - Italy). From 2001 to 2014 she worked as external researcher and lecturer in Pavia University, Engineering Faculty, in Applied Physics. She also taught in several professional courses. In 2012 Lucia Cattani worked in the research team of the University of Pavia devoted to design a new machine which can extract water from air. The research ended with the prototype construction. In 2014 she became R&D manager for SEAS-SA, a Swiss start up, which bought rights about the said research and started to build and sell integrated machines which extract water from air and permit to increase energy efficiency in building heating and cooling. In 2017 she shifted to a part time occupation in SEAS, as R&D scientific consultant, in order to return to research and teaching activities in Pavia University.

Nowadays she continues her work in SEAS and at the same time carries out research in the field of water from air extraction as external researcher in Pavia University.

Scientific results

Thanks to her studies and previous research work, Lucia Cattani obtained an interdisciplinary attitude, which permits her to work in the branch of Applied Physics which regards advanced integrated plants devoted to increase energy saving and drinking water generation. Having knowledge about: thermodynamics, heat transmission, renewable energies, hydraulics, water sanification and purification treatments, waste treatment and recycling, she was able to become R&D manager of an innovative start up, SEAS SA in the field of AWG (atmospheric water generator). Integrated systems AWA modula, produced by SEAS SA, are not simple water from air extractors, but are particular machines, which can provide not only high quality drinking water, but also two thermal contributes, a fresh and dry airflow and an heating flux. All the said functionalities are obtained at the same time with the same energy consumption. AWA is an evolution of the research prototype and is designed to employ all the useful effects of a reverse cycle applied to environmental air.

Her research field regarded also applied acoustics, heat transmission, energy saving, building sustainability
