WIE Panel for MetroAeroSpace - June 24, 2020
In line with the objectives of the WIE Committment Chart "Steering girls to STEM" (https://site.ieee.org/italy-wie/steer2stem/), the purpose of the panel is to promote female models who are role models and who carry out mentoring activities towards young minds.
To this end, the panel wants to highlight how from the comparison between experienced and early stage researchers on their respective experiences it is possible to identify guidelines and prospects for growth and good practices that increase the presence of young women in the aerospace sector.
The structure of the Panel will be composed as follows: # 3 topic: Measurements in AeroSpace; TLC in AeroSpace; Radars in AeroSpace; # 3 Speaker experienced researcher (women) with # 2 young researcher / PhD student (1 boy and 1 girl) for each experienced researcher.
Each speaker, role model in the reference sector, will address one of the three selected topics, with a technical intervention on their sector; then the two early stage researchers (two for each speaker, one boy and one girl) will take the floor and will be able to briefly talk about their experience and ask questions to the speaker.

University of Salerno, Italy
Patrizia Lamberti (IEEE M’06, ORCID: 0000-0002-5037-8074) received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. in information engineering from the University of Salerno (Italy), in 2001 and 2006, respectively. She is Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Department of Information and Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics of the University of Salerno (UniSA). She teaches Eletrical Engineering for bachelor degree student in Chemical and in Mechanical Engineering and Transducer for Bioinfomatic and Digital Health for Master degree student in Bioinformatic and Digital Health. She is vice-dean of NanoMates interdepartmental research center (Research Centre for Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology at the University of Salerno) and scientific coordinator for UniSA in the Italian inter-university research center ICEmB (Interaction between Electromagnetic fields and Biological systems). She serves as vice-Chair of IEEE Women in Engineering Affinity Group Italy Section. Prof. Lamberti is co-founder of the UniSA spin-off AI4Health S.r.l. His research interests concern tolerance analysis and robust design of electromagnetic (EM) devices, the EM modeling and characterization of new nanomaterials and devices, the EM treatment of cells and biological systems using Pulsed Electric Field. The research activities of Patrizia Lamberti (h-index 21, Scopus nov. 2020) led to more than 50 journal papers, 3 book chapters, 3 Italian, 2 European and 1 US patents. She has been involved in more than 30 international and national scientific projects as responsible or team member and she is currently UniSA principal investigator for activities concerning EM robust design in 4 European projects founded in the EU-H2020 framework (nov. 2020).
With more than 25 years of experience in aerospace and defence sectors, Fiorella Lamberti started her carrier in system engineering for Earth Observation, Satellite Navigation and Communications space systems, working for many international projects with the main space agencies (NASA, ESA, EUMETSAT, ASI). She was also project leader for many projects of the European Union's Research and Innovation funding programmes, in the field of space, environment and disaster management.
In 2004, she moved to communication, covering different roles for several Italian companies in the aerospace and defence domains. She has been working for Leonardo since 2015, supporting communication campaigns focused on special projects, mainly communication and dissemination activities for funded research projects with the role of Communication Manager.
She also collaborates with several professional organisations, in particular, she is member of the Board of Directors of AFCEA Rome Chapter, and of the IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Society, where she coordinates the communication activities for the WIE Affinity Group - Italy Section.
