Prof. Simona Salicone received the M.Sc. and PhD degrees cum LAUDE in Electrical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 2000 and 2004, respectively.
In 2000, she joined the Dipartimento di Elettrotecnica, Politecnico di Milano, as a part-time Researcher. Since 2005, she has been an Assistant Professor of electrical and electronic measurements in the same department. In 2012, she joined the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB), Politecnico di Milano and, since 2014, she has been an Associate Professor of electrical and electronic measurements in the same department.
Simona Salicone taught the courses “Digital Filters” and “Digital Signal Processing” of the Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano and is actually professor of the course “Measurement architectures for electric systems” in the same degree.
Simona Salicone research activity deals with Digital Signal Processing applied to measurements with particular concern to the metrology characterization of the measurement systems based on complex algorithms. In this field, she has proposed an innovative approach to the expression and estimation of uncertainty in measurement framed within the mathematical theory of evidence, a more general theory than the probability theory. This approach considers the method followed by the IEC-ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement as a particular case, and is aimed at overcoming the theoretical and practical limitations of the Guide, thanks to the more general mathematical environment in which the concept of measurement uncertainty is considered. The new proposed approach has been applied in different field: mechanics, electrical, biomedical. Simona Salicone scientific activity is summarized in more than 100 papers published in national and international journals and presented in international conferences.
Simona Salicone serves as a reviewer for the following journals, publishers and conferences: the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement; the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery; the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement magazine; the International Journal of Uncertainty, Fuzziness and Knowledge-Based Systems; Elsevier publisher; Springer publisher; Hindawi publisher; the IEEE I2MTC conferences; the MeMeA conferences; the IEEE AMPS conferences.
In 2004 she has received, by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society, in recognition of contributions made to measurement uncertainty theory, the 2004 Outstanding Young Engineer Award. In 2007, Simona Salicone is elected, by the Officers and Board of Directors of the IEEE, to the grade of IEEE Senior Member. Since 2013, Simona Salicone has been part of the Academic Board of the PhD in Electrical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.
Since 2014, she has been part of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine.
In 2016 Simona Salicone has received, in appreciation of outstanding service to IEEE Transaction on Instrumentation and Measurement, the recognition as one of the Transactions Outstanding Reviewers of 2015, by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society. Since 2016, Simona Salicone has been the Associate Editor in Chief of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine. Simona Salicone is the winner of the 2016 IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society Faculty Course Development Award.
