Prof. Specogna Ruben

Assistant professor.

Curriculum vitae

Ruben Specogna was born in Cividale del Friuli (Udine), Italy, on March 23rd, 1977. He received the Laurea Degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Udine, Udine, Italy, during the 2001/2002 Academic year. His Master thesis concerned the per unit length parameter matrix extraction of general multiconductor transmission lines using the discrete geometric approach to solve the electromagnetic field problems. In 2003 he joined the Department of Electrical, Mechanical and Management Engineering (DIEGM) of the University of Udine, Udine, Italy, as a PhD student in the field of computational electromagnetics, in particular in the analysis of low frequency electromagnetic fields with discrete geometric techniques and applications. During the PhD, he collaborated with several International research centers such as the Institute of Computational Electromagnetism, Department of Electrical Engeneering, Tampere University of Technology (Tampere, Finland), Unit of Applied Electricity, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sience, Université of Liège (Liège, Belgium) and the Center for Computational Science, Boston University (Boston (MA), USA).

During 2008 I was postdoc in the Applied and computational electromagnetics (ACE) research unit at Université de Liège, Liège, Belgium. In late 2008 I become Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering at University of Udine. I am co-author of over 25 scientific papers, mainly in the field of computational electromagnetism, published in refereed international journals endowed with ISI impact factor. I am in the Editorial Board of the COMPUMAG conference.

He is actively involved in the international research group called "Advanced Computational Electromagnetics", leaded by prof. A. Bossavit, L. Kettunen and P.R. Kotiuga, as documented by the scientific and organizing contributions to the 5th Workshop on Advanced Computational Electromagnetics (ACE'09), held in January 2009, at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Rome (

Since 2003, R. Specogna together with F. Trevisan, has been developed, a scientific code named GAME (Geometric Approach to Maxwell's Equations) implementing the Discrete Geometric Approach for static and quasistatic field problems. This scientific code is used by universities, research centers and industrial laboratories.
