Mattia Frasca was born in Siracusa, Italy, in 1976. He graduated in Electronics Engineering in 2000 and received the Ph.D. in Electronics and Automation Engineering in 2003, at the University of Catania, Italy. Currently, he is research associate at the University of Catania, where he also teaches process control and systems theory. His scientific interests include nonlinear systems and chaos, complex networks and bio-inspired robotics. He is involved in many research projects and collaborations with industries and academic centers. He is referee for many international journals and conferences, Associate Editor of the International Journal of Bifurcations and Chaos, and Editor of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals. He served as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I in 2012-15. He was one of the organizers of the 10th “Experimental Chaos Conference” and co-chair of the 4th International Conference on Physics and Control. He is General Chair of the European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design 2017. He is coauthor of one research monograph with Springer, four with World Scientific and two textbooks with CRC Press. He
published more than 250 papers on refereed international journals and international conference proceedings and is co-author of two international patents. He is member of the IEEE CAS Education Technical Committee and IEEE CNN Technical Committee. He is a member of the Board of the Italian Society for Chaos and Complexity (SICC) and of the Cybernetics and Physics
Research field and activities
Control of complex networks
Chaos and nonlinear circuits
I’m particularly interested to applications of memristors in control of complex networks.
