Directed by Anna Scaglione, the Signal, Information, Networks and Energy Laboratory (SINE Lab) at Arizona State University focuses on research at the intersection of signal processing, network science and energy systems.
Anna Scaglione is a Professor in electrical and computer engineering at Arizona State University. Prior to ASU, she was a Professor of electrical engineering from 2010 to 2014 and Associate Professor from 2008-2010 at the University of California at Davis. Before joining UC Davis Anna Scaglione was Assistant Professor (2001-2006) and then tenured Associate Professor at Cornell from 2006 to 2008. Prior to joining Cornell she was Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico from 2000-2001. In 2006 she was visiting professor at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, and in 2013 at Stanford University.
Her expertise is in the broad area of statistical signal processing for communication, electric power systems and networks. Her current research focuses on studying and enabling decentralized learning and signal processing in networks of sensors. She also focuses on sensor systems and networking models for cyber security in critical infrastructure and for the demand side management and reliable energy delivery and in other aspects at the intersection between intelligent infrastructure, information systems and social networks.
Professor Anna Scaglione received her “Laurea” and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Rome, Italy in 1995 and 1999 respectively. She was a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Minnesota in 2000. To date, Scaglione has mentored 12 Ph.D. graduates, four postdoctoral students and a number of master’s and undergraduate students.
Scaglione was elected an IEEE fellow in 2011, and was so honored by both the Signal Processing and the Communication Societies. She was editor in chief from 2012-2013 of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters, and served as associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications from 2002-2005. From 2008-2011, she served on the editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing from 2008, where she was area editor in 2010-2011.
She was general chair of the SPAWC 2005 workshop and on the Signal Processing for Communication Committee from 2004 to 2009. She has been an IEEE SmartGridComm conference steering committee member since 2010, and served on the board of governors of the Signal Processing Society from 2012 to 2014.
Scaglione is the first author of the paper that received the 2000 IEEE Signal Processing Transactions Best Paper Award and she was recently honored for the 2013, and is co-recipient of the IEEE Donald G. Fink Prize Paper Award for the best review paper in that year across all IEEE publications.
Her research with her students was also honored with the 2013 IEEE Signal Processing Society Young Author Best Paper Award (Lin Li), and two conference best paper awards: the Ellersick Best Paper Award (MILCOM 2005) and the student best paper award at Smartgridcomm 2014. She was also a recipient of the NSF CAREER grant in 2002 and of the Outstanding mid-career faculty in the college of Engineering at UC Davis.
A co-holder of eight granted U.S. patents, Scaglione is the author of over 230 publications, including 64 refereed journal articles, 164 refereed conference and invited papers, six periodical articles, 11 book chapters and two proceedings papers.
Since 2001, Scaglione has been a frequent keynote or plenary speaker and was invited to contribute over 40 conference papers in meetings around the globe.
