Claudio Narduzzi

Claudio Narduzzi (born in Venice, Italy in 1958) received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in Electronics engineering from the University of Padua in 1982. He is a full Professor in Instrumentation and Measurement at the Engineering School of the University of Padua, where he currently teaches bachelor and master level courses for Electronics Engineering, as well as a course at the Ph.D. School in Information Engineering. His main research interests are digital signal processing applications in measurement and distributed test and measurement systems.

Specific research topics encompass several instrumentation-related application areas in electronics, telecommunications and networking. They include spectral analysis, inverse filtering, circuit testing, quantization and analogue-to-digital conversion, instrumentation and test system characterization, measurement and diagnostics for packet-switched communications networks, traffic analysis and quality of service assessment.

Current interests are mainly oriented towards networked measurement systems, the analysis of their performances and the application of advanced signal processing methods, such as compressed sensing, in distributed measurement.

Prof. Narduzzi actively participates in national and international research activities. He was the principal investigator in two joint "national relevance" (PRIN) research projects, funded by the Italian Ministry for University and Research (MIUR) in 2005 and in 2009. He has been involved in research activities for the European Union 4th and 5th Framework Programmes and at present collaborates in the SmartGrid II project within the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP).

He is a member of IEEE and co-chair of IEEE Technical Committee TC-37 "Measurements and Networking", in which role he served as General Chairman of the IEEE International Workshop on Measurements and Networking (M&N).
He is a regular reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (nominated one of the Outstanding Reviewers of 2013) and participates in the Technical Committees of several international conferences, including the IEEE International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference (I2MTC) and the IEEE International Symposium on Precision Clock Synchronization (ISPCS).

He is a member of technical committee CT 1/25 (Terminology, quantities and units) of the Comitato Elettrotecnico Italiano (CEI) and in 2014 has been nominated as a IEC representative in the Working Group on the International Vocabulary of Basic and General Terms in Metrology (VIM) of the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology (JCGM).

Between 2008 and 2012 he served a four-year term as the Director of Taught Programmes in Electronics Engineering at the University of Padua.

Prof. Narduzzi is the author of over 150 scientific papers and of textbooks for academic courses.
