Biographical Note

Prof. Agostino MATHIS  received a “laurea” in Electrical Engineering and a post-graduate “diploma” in Nuclear Engineering at the Turin Politechnic School of Engineering. He holds the “libera docenza” in Automatic Controls at the Rome “La Sapienza” University, where from 1975 to 1985 has been Professor of Automatic Controls for Nuclear Engineers. In 1973-1974 he has been Professor of Programming and Electronic Computers at the L’Aquila University. He has also carried on many courses and seminars related to process modeling and simulation, management information systems, high performance computing, energy and climate change. As a nuclear engineer, in 1958 Agostino Mathis took up his job at the building yard of a 5 MWth heavy water research reactor, the Ispra-1, in the Italian Ispra Nuclear Research Center. Already in the spring of 1959, the Ispra-1 reactor attained the first criticality, and afterwards was driven to full power under his supervision. Within the Italian Commission for Nuclear Energy (CNEN), he carried out research and design activities in the field of control and safety systems for nuclear plants, in connection with the main projects going on in Italy: organic coolant reactor PRO and its critical facility ROSPO; reactor for the nuclear ship Enrico Fermi; heavy water reactor CIRENE; fast neutron reactors TAPIRO e RAPTUS. Subsequently, as head of the Directorate for Management and Programs Control, he carried out the design and the implementation of the management information system of the Commission. Within the Commission for Nuclear and Alternative Energies (ENEA), he has been the head of the Information Systems Directorate, while within the Italian National Agency for New Technology, Energy and the Environment (whose acronym remains ENEA), he has been the head of the High Performance Computing and Networking (HPCN) Project. Besides, he has coordinated several initiatives for the introduction of new information and telecommunication technologies in districts of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME).

At present, he is Scientific Advisor of the “Centro di Progettazione, Design & Tecnologie dei Materiali” (CETMA), in Brindisi (Italy), and member of the technical-scientific committee for the Progetto CRESCO (Computational Research Center for Complex Systems), which is implementing the new supercomputing center for ENEA. Recently, he has been appointed as a member of the Scientific Committee of the Italian Nuclear Association.

He is acting as a Scientific Expert for many Public Administrations, in particular the Italian Ministry for University and Research and the Italian Ministry for Economic Development, in the evaluation of proposals and in the control of execution of research programs and projects, presented by Universities, Research Agencies and Enterprises.

With the MIINS group, Agostino Mathis also provides precious large interdisciplinary scientific, managerial and theoretical technological experiences related to the safety  of commercial nuclear power plants and their engineering vulnerabilities.
