Biography

Elisa Capello is Professor of Flight Mechanics at Politecnico di Torino, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. She is research associate at the Istituto di Elettronica e di Ingegneria dell'Informazione e delle Telecomunicazioni (IEIIT) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), in the Systems Modeling and Control group (http://www.sct.ieiit.cnr.it) since 2012. She is a member of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Member (IEEE), Control Systems Society since 2014. She is a member of the IEEE Technical Committee in Aerospace Control since 2016. She is member of the SIDRA, Società Italiana Docenti e Ricercatori in Automatica, since 2017. Author of more than 100 papers published in international journals and conferences of the following sectors: aerospace engineering, control, automation and robotics. She is involved in research activities in the following fields: design of guidance, control and navigation systems for aircraft and spacecraft, control of wind turbine and wind farm, flight mechanics of fixed and rotary wing aircraft, testing of unmanned aerial systems, planning and mission control for autonomous systems. As part of her research activities, she collaborates with academic institutions, research centers, networks and companies, both in Italy and abroad. Elisa Capello was an International FAI Judge for Helicopter Championship from 2009 to 2015. She is the scientific coordinator of the following projects: Cooperation and REliable Autonomous TEchnologies to Foster Operations Relying on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (CREATEFORUAS), Assessment and preliminary prototyping of a drag free control system for the L3 gravity wave observatory, Control System Design for Gust Load Alleviation in the Clean Sky Green Regional Aircraft (Airgreen 2) Low Noise Configuration (LNC) domain. International Collaborations: Naval Postgraduate School of Monterey, Spacecraft Robotics Laboratory, USA; Osaka University, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology and Graduate School of Engineering, Japan; University of Stuttgart, Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control; University of Illinois, Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering.
