Dr. Frosina earned her Ph.D. from the University Naples Federico II (Italy) in 2016, presenting a thesis in the field of Fluid Power. From 2017, Dr. Frosina was Assistant Professor of Fluid Machinery in the same University (University of Naples, Italy), on 2020, she moved to the University of Sannio (Italy) as Assistant Professor.
Fluid power technology has been Dr. Frosina's major research interest since the beginning of her career in Academia. The targets of her research are the improvement of energy efficiency, energy-saving and recovering, energy storage, renewable energy systems, durability, and noise emissions in fluid power. To achieve these goals, her research team has developed innovative numerical models (0D, 1D, and 3D CFD) and experimental techniques for components systems. The team has also designed new solutions for pumps and valves. Prof. Frosina's interests also include the hybridization and electrification of hydraulic systems, and the modeling of the properties of hydraulic fluids (with a focus on the effects of aeration and cavitation) in fluid power systems; she is also involved in researches focused on the thermal management of components (such as cooling systems), and the emissions reduction of vehicles.
Dr. Frosina is the author of more than 50 papers, published in international journals or conferences. She is a faculty member of the Global Fluid Power Society (GFPS). Dr. Frosina is involved in the Editorial Board of International Journal of Fluid Power, Fluids, and Journal of Energy and Power Engineering.
