Prof. Bellina Fabrizio

Full professor.

Short curriculum vitae

Professor Fabrizio Bellina was born in Conegliano (Treviso, Italy) on 1958. He took his doctoral degree cum laude in Electrical Engineering at Padova University (Padova, Italy) on February 1983. He then followed the "Corso di Perfezionamento in Ingegneria del Plasma e della Fusione Termonucleare Controllata" (a post degree course on plasma engineering) organised by Padova University in 1984. The final examination was passed cum laude. From September 1984 to April 1990 he was with "Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche" (National Research Council), working at the "Istituto Gas Ionizzati" of Padova. In that period, his activity was in fusion research, mainly in the design and manufacture of the RFX machine (a toroidal machine for the fusion research based on the reversed field pinch configuration) magnets. From April 1990 to October 1998 Fabrizio Bellina was a researcher in Electrical Engineering at the Padova University, and went on working in the same research subjects, still cooperating with Istituto Gas Ionizzati. From November 1998 to december 2003 he was associated professor of Electrical Engineering at the Udine University (Udine, Italy). In December 19, 2003 he became full professor of Electrical Engineering at the same university. Presently he is cooperating with the international design and development group of ITER machine (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, a toroidal fusion experimental machine based on the tokamak configuration). In this activity he is developing methodologies for the simulation of joints between superconducting cables. During PRIN project for 2004, professor Bellina has been associated investigator for the Udine Research Unit.
