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, 5 postdoctoral scholars and a number of master’s and undergraduate students.
