She graduated cum laude in October 1997 and was hence appointed responsible for the BSc course Energetic Systems - A.Y. 1997/1998. The scientific production of Prof. Misul consists of several publications, covering the following research streams: SI engine technology for natural gas and bi-fuel ICEs; model-based control approaches for Diesel ICEs; diagnostic and predictive 0D/1D tools for evaluating injection, combustion process and emission formation in diesel and SI engines; in-cylinder fluid-dynamics and combustion (CFD) of ICEs; optimization of hybrid architectures; CFD modelling activities for turbomachinery, AI algorithms for xEVs control and ADAS applications. She has also been contributing to the coordination of the research activities within the PT-ERC (Polito – Engine Research Center) research group with specific reference to the scientific responsibility and coordination of some of the research contracts as well as to team building and fund-raising activities. She held the scientific responsibility of National and International research projects, ruled through partnership agreements with companies and/or public private bodies, which are leaders in their own sector, and she has also been recently coordinating activities related to the use of AI for smart application in the automotive sector. She is also coordinating activities within the Center for Automotive Research and Sustainable mobility@PoliTO (CARS@PoliTO) group.
