Computer Science


Marta Chinnici is currently a senior researcher at the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA) in the Energy Technology Department , where she works on ICT for energy efficiency issues. She received her Master’s degree in mathematics in 2004, and her PhD in applied mathematics and computer science  in 2008 from the University of Naples, Italy, with a thesis on stochastic self-similar processes and application in non-linear dynamical systems. Prior to her appointment with ENEA, she was a fellow and research assistant at the University of Salerno and a postdoctoral research fellow at ENEA/

Marta has held different professorship positions while at ENEA, including Adjunct Professor in Qualitative Methods and Mathematics for Economic and Business, and Professor in Mathematics andEconomics for the MBA course at the Link Campus University, Rome, where she has also been a member of the assessment board from 2013 to 2015. Her current research interests include energy efficiency in data centres including metrics and standards, computer science, big data analysis, complex networks, and smart cities. She has published widely in the above fields, jointly authoring over 50 papers in international journal and peer-reviewed conferences, and has regularly presented her research findings to international audiences, including several invited keynote lectures. She serves as a regular reviewer for numerous international journals. She has also been editor and managing guest editor for the book Energy Efficient Data Centers edited by Springer.

Marta is a member of the organising and technical program committees of several national and international conferences/workshops while also acting as session chair and/or co-chair. She works widely with international research institutions and industries in the fields of ICT, computer science, and energy efficiency. In addition to her research work, she also serves asa supervisor for master and PhD candidates and is a guest lecturer for measuring energy efficiency at the University of Leeds, UK. Aside from this, Marta is a member of the Italian Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIMAI), the Activity Group on Complex Systems (SisCo), and a member of the Italian Mathematical Union (UMI). She is finally a peer-reviewer/evaluator for several European programmes in the fields of ICT, smart grid and smart cities, including HORIZON2020, Cost Action, Marie Curie (EC) and the Caixa Foundation (Spain).
