Francesco Bonavolontà received his PhD degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, in 2015. He is currently a Researcher at the Department of Electrical and Information Technologies, University of Naples Federico II. He received the national qualification as Associate Professor of the scientific area 09/E4 Measurements. He also teaches Sensors and Smart Metering for students of the Master degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II. His research activity is focused on the area of instrumentation and measurement and can be divided into three main areas: 1) remote control of measurement instruments: in this context he has defined, designed and developed several solutions, based on both proprietary and open-source development environments, for the configuration and management of complex measurement stations distributed over a geographical network; 2) measurement methods based on compressed sampling: definition, implementation and development of innovative measurement methods exploiting the recent compressed acquisition paradigm that allows to obtain reliable measurements starting from a reduced number of samples of the signal of interest; and 3) distributed measurement systems for monitoring and protection of power grids: definition, implementation and development of innovative platforms based on the enabling technologies of the Internet of Things for the measurement of electricity consumption and the protection of distribution systems in the presence of fault conditions. More recently, his research activities are focusing on the development of innovative measurement sensors based on augmented reality and artificial intelligence algorithms. Dr. Bonavolontà is a member of the Technical Committee TC-37 on Measurement and Networking of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
