Alessandro Di Giorgio received the Degree in Physics in 2005 and the Ph.D. in Systems Engineering in 2010. Since 2007 he has collaborated with the Consortium for the Research in Automation and Telecommunications. Since 2009 he has been a Post-Doc and an Assistant Professor (RTD-A) at DIAG - Sapienza University of Rome, and a Lecturer at Università Telematica eCampus. He is currently an Associate Professor at DIAG - Sapienza University of Rome (SSD: ING-INF/04 Automatica). Over the last ten years he has taught Modeling and Simulation, Automation Technologies, Network Control and Handling, Automatic Control.

His research activities deal with the application of systems and control theory methodologies to the analysis and control of networks, focusing on next generation electricity grids (Smart Grids); topics of interest include, but are not limited to, local energy management systems for demand side management, integration of wind turbines, energy storage systems and electromobility in the operation of microgrids and distribution grids, and power system protection against adverse events and malicious attacks. He is the author of more than 20 journal papers, 40 conference papers and book chapters on these topics.

Since 2007, he has participated in 10 research projects funded by the European Union (EU), 1 project funded in the context of the italian programme Industria 2015 and 4 academic projects, also taking the role of Principal Investigator. The results of his research activities in the field of electromobility are the subject of technology transfer activities, undertaken by the Sapienza’s start-up Applied Research to Technologies, whose Alessandro Di Giorgio is proponent and scientific reference.
