Dr. Davide Astiaso Garcia

Davide Astiaso Garcia, PhD in Thermal Science, Energy Technology and Building Physics in 2011, is Assistant Professor of Thermal Sciences, Energy Technology and Building Physics at the Department of Astronautical, Electrical and Energy Engineering (DIAEE) of the Sapienza University of Rome.

In 2017 he got the National Academic Qualification as Associate Professor in Thermal Science, Energy Technology and Building Physics (09C2).

Furthermore, he is the Secretary General of the Italian Wind Energy Association (ANEV), and the Secretary General of Coordinamento FREE (Coordination of Renewable Sources and Energy Efficiency).

His research activities at DIAEE started in 2006. He is currently involved in two H2020 projects GIFT - Geographical Islands FlexibiliTy - H2020-LC-SC3-2018-ES-SCC (BUILDING A LOW-CARBON, CLIMATE RESILIENT FUTURE: SECURE, CLEAN AND EFFICIENT ENERGY) Type of action: IA) and ODYSSEA (Operating a network of integrated observatory systems in the Mediterranean Sea; Type of Action: RIA), one EEA funded project (Youth Employment Network for Energy Sustainability in ISlands – YENESIS and one Erasums+ project (SIMULWIND - Maintenance simulator for the sustainability of European wind farms).

He has scientific expertise in more than 15 national and international research projects (also as Project coordinator, Chair of the Steering Committee, Project Contact Person and WP leader) and he is author of more than 60 publications on journals and national and international congresses mainly concerning energy themes (44 publications indexed in Scopus. H index: 15 and 512 citations in Scopus database).
