Curriculum Vitae
Giuseppe Chitarin received a doctoral Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Padova in 1982. In the same year he was awarded a fellowship on HVDC transmission lines research at CESI, Milan. In 1984 he joined CNR as researcher and participated to the design, assembly and commissioning of the magnets for the RFX Reversed Field Pinch experiment in Padova. From 1991 to 1997 he took part to several experimental studies on RFP plasma magnetic configurations, plasma instabilities and mode-locking phenomena and on their mitigation.
In 1990 he was Research Assistant at the University of Padova. He was appointed Associate Professor at the University of Padova in 1998. From 1997 to 2008 he has been Leader of the Magnet System Group at Consorzio RFX and was responsible for the design of new local control coils for the active control of the magnetic configurations in RFX (1998-2004) and of in-vessel magnetic sensors for RFX, for JET-EP (2003-2007) and for ITER (2005-2008).
From 2008 to 2017 he has been deputy Programme Leader for the Physics and Engineering Developments of the Neutral Beam Test Facility (NBTF) for ITER at Consorzio RFX in Padova. Since July 2017 he is deputy Project Leader for the Accelerator/Neutralizer Physics and Experiments of the NBTF.
He is author of more than 160 international scientific papers and of one invention. His research interests include: -design and optimization of complex electromagnetic systems for high-temperature plasma confinement and material processing - operation of magnetic-confinement fusion devices (Tokamak and RFP). -design and optimization of magnetic devices and sensors for research and industrial applications -analysis of magnetic measurements data and identification of magnetic configurations -design, development and experimentation of high power Neutral Beam Injector for plasma heating.

The research activity of Prof. Chitarin is focused on the methods for the design and optimization of complex electromagnetic systems and on their application to real experimental devices. The applications include magnetic systems for plasma confinement (RFP and Tokamaks), for negative ion accelerators for neutral beam injectors and magnetic levitation systems for molten metals. He also has experience in the operation and analysis of data obtained from large experiments.

At the University of Padova in Vicenza he has set-up an experimental device for magnetic levitation and electromagnetic processing of light alloys. He also has contributed to the development of several collaborations with industrial partners in the field of industrial applications of plasma (plasma cutting torches) and of electromagnetic device modelling, with a twofold target: educational (allowing the students to gain a practical experience and get in touch with industrial world) and scientific (provide to the industry useful support for applied research and development)

G. Chitarin is author or co-author of more than 160 publications on international journals or conferences.
