Elisa Francomano received her degree in mathematics cum laude from the University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy, in 1988. In 1989, she joined the Istituto di Calcolo e Reti Ad Alte Prestazioni (ICAR), National Research Council, Palermo, Italy, on a fellowship, working on numerical methods and parallel computing. Yet, in 1992, she was awarded the fellowship on numerical methods and parallel computing of the National Research Council for the Sistemi Informatici e Calcolo Parallelo project. Elisa Francomano was an Associate Professor of numerical analysis at the Faculty of Engineering, the University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy, from 2000 to 2005. Moreover, she has been working as a Vice Chair of Centro Interdipartimentale di Tecnologie delle Conoscenze (CITC), University degli Studi di Palermo, Palermo, Italy, since 2005, besides being a Member of the Scientific Committee of CITC. Her research interests focus on numerical solutions of integral and partial differential equations, scientific computation, numerical linear algebra, approximation theory, mesh-free methods, wavelets, parallel algorithms, development of software packages, computational electromagnetics, numerical modeling for artificial intelligence, and biomathematics. She has been also working as a Reviewer for the Journal of Applied Mathematics, the Applied Mathematical Modelling Journal, the Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics, the Numerical Algorithms, the Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements, the Bentham Journals, the Bentham Books, the Journal of Electromagnetic Analysis and Applications (JEMAA), the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, the IEEE Transactions on Computers, and the Computer Physics Communications.
