/Director of Research
Oscar Antonio PEVERINI received the Laurea degree in Telecommunication Engineering (summa cum laudae) and the Ph. D. degree in Electronic and Communication Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 1997 and 2001 respectively. During his doctoral studies, he carried out research activity in the area of acousto-optical and piezoelectric devices.
Between October 1999 and September 2000 he was a visiting researcher at the Applied Physics/Integrated Optics Department of the University of Paderborn, Germany, where he was involved in the design of novel LiNbO3-based optical devices.
From November 2000 to February 2001 he worked on optical modeling of liquid crystal devices at the Physics Department of the Politecnico di Torino in the framework of the European MonLCD project.
From February 2001 to December 2001, he was a research fellow of the CNR-IRITI institute, where he was mainly involved in the design of microwave and millimeter-wave components for the detection of the polarizagion state of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) within the SPort and Bar-SPort projects funded by the Italian Space Agency.
In December 2001, he joined the CNR-IEIIT institute as a permanent-position researcher working in Applied Electromagnetics. Since January 2007, he is a senior researcher in the same institute, where currenlty he is the responsible coordinator of the Applied Electromagnetics and Electronic Device group.
Since 1999, he has been a lecturer on Electromagnetic Field Theory and Numerical Methods at the Politecnico di Torino, where he has been the co-supervisor of several Laurea-degree students and Ph.D. students. He has been the supervisor of several research fellows at CNR-IEIIT working in microwave and millimeter-wave technologies.
He has been the CNR scientific manager for several research projects aimed at the development of Space technologies, mainly funded by the European Space Agency, the Italian Space Agency, the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics, and the industry.
He has been collaborating with both industrial and scientific partners, among which are Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, IFAM-Fraunhofer, Politecnico di Torino, Universita’ di Milano, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Thales Alenia Space Italia, and OHB Italia.
He serves as a reviewer for several journals and conferences in the microwave and millimeter-wave area. He has authored and co-authored over 140 articles on JCR journals and international conferences with ISBN, and he is co-inventor of 3 European Patent Applications.
