Degree in Electrical Engineering cum laude at Padua University, 1979.
Master in Business Administration at CUOA, 1986.
PhD in Electrical Sciences in Rome, 1987.

Professor of Electrical Engineering since October 2003 and of History of Technology since 2007 at Padua University.

He is a columnist and a member of the editorial board of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine.
He is associated editor of the Elsevier Encyclopedia on Energy Storage
He has been appointed to a number of positions within organizations working of the European Commission.
He started a number of collaborations with foreign institutions in Europe, Japan USA and Russia.

He has worked to the Eta Beta II and RFX projects on controlled thermonuclear fusion in magnetic confinement, developed in Padua in collaboration with English, Irish, Swedish, US, and Japanese research centers. He was engaged in studying and designing the magnetic configurations of these devices, for which he conceived ad-hoc numerical tools, able to simulate the operation and performance of the magnetic systems. He was also committed at managing the contracts for the manufacture of the devices’ inductors. He also worked on the design and manufacturing of their power supplies, and of their measurement, monitoring and protection systems, conceiving and defining original solutions and technologies. He studied the magnetic configurations, which provide the plasma equilibrium and stability, in order to identify good plasma performance and confinement.
He has largely studied computational methods for electromagnetic coupled and myltiphysic problems, which are used in both the industrial and biomedical fields. A part of this research regards the development of formulations involving also fluid dynamics, which must be considered in a number a energy-related electromagnetic problems. He has studied numerical models for electrical systems based on fuel cells, developing procedure for simulating their multi-physical performance, which can be applied to the definition of optimized industrial solutions.
He directed a number of sub-programs within several National Interest Research Programs (PRINs) in the years 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 (in this case as the deputy-coordinator).
He has also been responsible for some projects funded by the University of Padua and Regione Veneto. He has led a research program of the Strategic Project 2011, the most funded and competitive research program issued by the University of Padua (€810,000).
He was appointment to teach in the Italian National Doctorate School in Electrical Engineering "F. Gasparini" in 2008.
He co-chaired a number of international congresses.

He authored over 290 scientific publications (162 indexed by Scopus), mostly papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conference proceedings. They including over thirty books on electromagnetism, electrical networks, electrical technologies and history of technology, some being adopted in other Italian universities.
He is listed in the World’s Top 2% Scientists Ranking of the Stanford University (yearly and career).

1) Attività sperimentali nell'Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion Laboratory (EESCoLab), creato da M. Guarnieri. Consistono nello sviluppo tecnologico svolto prevalentemente sulla batteria a flusso redox a vanadio da 9 kW, 27 kWh, una test facility unica di questa taglia in Italia e con pochissimi analoghi in Europa. Le ricerche mirano a mettere a punto tecnologie per l'accumulo energetico su grande scala, competitive a livello internazionale.
2) Analisi preliminari e progettazioni computer-assistite di dispostivi avanzati per l’accumulo energetico e la conversione energetica. Queste indagini coinvolgono aspetti elettrici, elettrochimici, fluidodinamici e meccanici, che vengono implementati in codici numerici che descrivono il comportamento multifisico dispositivi quali le celle a combustibile e le batterie a flusso redox. I modelli vengono usati nella definizione ed ottimizzazione di configurazioni che possono essere realizzate in laboratorio per fini di ricerca al fine di essere industrializzati.
3) Sviluppo e progettazione di imbarcazioni a propulsione elettrica per impeghi nella laguna di Venezia, in collaborazioni cono aziende veneziane.
4) Sviluppo, progettazione e gestione di microgrid dotate di unità innovative di generazione da fonti rinnovabili e di accumulo energetico, in collaborazioni cono aziende del territorio.

Argomenti di Tesi (Triennali, magistrali, dottorato):


Nell'Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion Laboratory (EESCoLab) vengono studiate le Batterie a Flusso e le Celle a Combustibile con tecnologiche avanzate. In particolare vengono sviluppate soluzioni e configurazioni innovative e vengono eseguiti test e collaudi di vario tipo.
Il EESCoLab dispone di un batteria redox da laboratorio da 9 kW e 27 kWh, che non ha equivalenti in altri laboratori italiani.
Le tesi possono essere svolte all'interno di progetti nazionali e internazioanli volti al trasferimento tecnologico, che possono coinvolgere grossi gruppi industriali.
