Davide M. Raimondo was born in Pavia, Italy, in 1981. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Engineering, and the Ph.D. in Electronics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from the University of Pavia, Italy, in 2003, 2005, and 2009, respectively. As a Ph.D. student he held a visiting scholar position at the Department of Automation and Systems Engineering, University of Seville, Spain (Oct. 06 - May 07). From January 2009 to December 2010 he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Automatic Control Laboratory, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. During the years 2012-2015 he spent several months (Mar. 12-Jun. 12, Aug. 13-Sep. 13, Sep. 14-Feb. 15, Oct. 15-Nov. 15) as a visiting scholar in Prof. Braatz Group, Department of Chemical Engineering, MIT, USA. From December 2010 to May 2015 he was Assistant Professor at University of Pavia, Italy. Since January 2013 he is head of the Educational Process Control Laboratory at the Department of Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering, University of Pavia, Italy and since May 2015 he is Associate Professor at the same university. Davide M. Raimondo held visiting professor positions also at University of Konstanz (October 2017 to February 2018) and Vienna University of Technology (March 2014 to April 2014 and March 2015 to April 2015).

Prof. Raimondo is the author or co-author of more than 85 papers published in refereed journals, edited books, and refereed conference proceedings. Davide M. Raimondo currently (January 12, 2021) has an h index of 24 (Scopus) - 29 (Google Scholar) and a number of citations equal to 2450 (Scopus) - 3878 (Google Scholar). In 2017, Prof. Raimondo, with co-authors, received the 2014-2016 Automatica Paper Prize Award for the paper J.K. Scott, D.M. Raimondo, G.R. Marseglia, R.D. Braatz: Constrained zonotopes: A new tool for set-based estimation and fault detection. Automatica, Vol. 69, July 2016, pp. 126-136. He is also promoter and co-author of the Li-ion Simulation Battery (LIONSIMBA) toolbox and co-author of the Battery Optimal Layer Design (BOLD) toolbox. His current research interests include advanced battery management systems, renewable energy, active fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control, model predictive control and optimization.

Davide Raimondo is currently local principal investigator for the University of Pavia of the Project Monitoring and Control Underpinning the Energy-Aware Factory of the Future: Novel Methodologies and Industrial Validation funded by the Italian Ministry for Research in the framework of the 2017 Program for Research Projects of National Interest (PRIN), Grant no. 2017YKXYXJ. He is also Principal investigator of two research contracts with ENI S.p.A on Modeling, forecasting and optimization of optimal bidding strategies in the free electricity market and forecasting of energy production by a wind farm in Italy. He recently received a grant from the Lombardy region for actions to enhance human capital and strengthen three new ENEA research labs. The grant was used to fund a PhD position on the topic of Integration of electric vehicles into smart grids. In the past Prof. Raimondo participated in several European projects (SEMI40, AP@HOME, IMPROVE, FEEDNETBACK), PRIN projects on control of glycaemia in diabetic patients, local projects (funded for collaborations with MIT), and contracts (with LPE S.p.A, Stelar S.r.l. as principal investigator, and CESI).

Davide Raimondo is/was member of the committee for the qualification to the profession of Computer Science Engineer (2012-2016), scientific board member of the Ph.D. program in Electronics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering (2017-) and secretary of the committee for the final evaluation of the Ph.D. candidates in Electronics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering (2018), Univ. of Pavia. He is/was subject editor for the journals Automatica (2020-), IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (2019-) and Optimal Control Applications and Methods (2015-2018), Associate Editor at Large CDC '20, IPC member of CDC '20, NMPC '18, '15, '12, ADCHEM '21, '15, ECC '13. CEB member of the IEEE Control Systems Society (2016-) and of ECC '19, '18, '15, '14, Associate Editor of CDC '16 -'20, ACC '16 - '20, ECC '20. Moreover, Prof. Raimondo was co-chair of the International workshop on Assessment and Future Direction of Nonlinear Model Predictive Control, Pavia, Italy, 2008 and organizer of the invited sessions "Nonlinear MPC" and "New Development in NMPC" for the 7th and 10th IFAC Symposium on Nonlinear Control Systems.
