Riccardo de Asmundis
Riccardo de Asmundis has been a senior researcher at the “Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare” (INFN), Naples Section, since January 1st 2007, where he has been working since 1991. He taught computer architecture, automatic measurements and data acquisition systems at the Information Technology Department of the University “Federico II” of Naples from 2001 until 2004. He has been a Certified LabVIEW Developer (CLD) and Certified Professional Instructor (CPI) for the National Instruments Company (Austin, Texas) with continuity since 2004, frequently giving courses for National Instruments Italy, both in industries and universities. He has done research in the field of experimental high energy physics, participating in the L3 experiment (1989 - 2001) and currently in the ATLAS experiment at CERN, in designing, testing and implementation of particle detectors for high energy physics and data acquisition/monitoring systems, being also an expert in technical infrastructures for detectors and experiments (power supply systems for low and high voltage, gas supply systems, even as designer engineer). He has been responsible for the design and production of gamma radiation detectors for nuclear medicine, successfully utilized in integrated machineries for automatic packaging of nuclear doses for patients in some Italian hospitals. In Naples he is the head of the high energy laboratory devoted to detector tests and quality control with cosmic rays. He is involved in some new researches devoted to develop possible applications of silicon photon detectors in Geiger regime. He recently joined the KM3NET experiment in INFN “Laboratori nazionali del Sud” (Sicily, Italy), where he is working on the development of control and monitoring software.
