Biography

Carlo Novara received the Laurea degree in Physics from Universitá di Torino (Italy) in 1996 and the PhD degree in Computer and System Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in 2002. He held a visiting researcher position at University of California at Berkeley in 2001 and 2004. He is currently a Full Professor at Politecnico di Torino (Italy). He is the author or co-author of about 180 scientific per-reviewed publications in international journals and conferences. He has been involved in several national and international projects and in several research contracts in collaboration with Italian and European companies. He is the co-author of several patents in the automotive field. He is a member of the IEEE TC on System Identification and Adaptive Control, of the IFAC TC on Modelling, Identification and Signal Processing, and a founding member of the IEEE-CSS TC on Medical and Healthcare Systems. His research interests include nonlinear and LPV system identification, filtering/estimation, time series prediction, nonlinear control, predictive control, data-driven methods, set membership methods, sparse methods, nonlinear optimization, and automotive, aerospace, biomedical and energy applications.
