Curriculum Vitae
Paolo Mattavelli received his Dr. degree with honors in electrical engineering from the University of Padova, Italy, in 1992. In 1992, he received an European Space Agency fellowship for research on "advanced control techniques for dc/dc converter". In 1996 he received his Ph.D. studies in electrical engineering at the same university. From 1995 to 2001, he was a researcher at the University of Padova. From 2001 to 2005 he was with the University of Udine, where he was an Associate Professor of Electronics since 2002 and responsible of the power electronics Laboratory. In 2005, he moved to the Department of Technology and Management of Industrial Systems of the University of Padova with the same duties. From 2010 to 2012 he was with the Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES) at Virginia Tech, an NSF engineering research center supported by more than 90 corporations. During his academic research, he was visiting researcher/professor in several universities: in 1995 and in 1995 at the Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT), in 2000 at Myongji University - Korea, in 1999 and in 2001 at NorthEastern University and in 2004 at CPES-Virginia Tech.

His major field of interest includes analysis, modeling and control of power converters and digital control techniques for power electronic circuits, power electronics for renewable energy systems and microgrids and for high-power density integration. He published about 300 papers in International Conferences (mainly IEEE), about 120 papers in International journals (mainly IEEE Transactions), 13 patents or patent pending and two books. He has coordinated more than 40 research contracts on power electronics with private companies or with government funding. His h-index (google scholar) is currently 64. He is also an IEEE Fellow.

From 2004 to 2010 He was the Technical Review Chairman for the IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications (IPCC Committee), from 2004 he has been Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, from 2004-2009 he was Member at Large of the ADCOM of the Power Electronics Society and he is a reviewer of the major Conference (IEEE PELS, APEC, IAS,…) and journals dealing with power electronics research (IEEE Transaction on Industry Applications, Power Electronics, etc..). In 2005, in 2006 and in 2012 he won the Prize Paper Award for the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics.

Research areas
The scientific activity is mainly carried out in the Power Electronics area, with particular attention to the modeling and control of switching converters, to high power factor rectifiers, to active power filters, to harmonic compensation, digital control techniques for power systems and, recently, the use of GaN and SiC devices for high power density and high temperature converters. In recent years the research activities are also focused on power converters for renewable sources (photovoltaic, wind, etc.), for energy storage, and for Smart Grids.
