Program for Monday, May 9th

Stefania Romeo received the master’s degree (summa cum laude) in biomedical engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, and the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from the Second University of Naples, Aversa, Italy, in 2008 and 2012, respectively.

From June 2012 to March 2016, she was with IREA-CNR, Naples, as a Research Fellow, and currently, she is a Research Scientist with the same institution.

From September 2010 to March 2011, she was a Visiting Student with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electrophysics, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA. On May 2014, she was a Visiting Scientist with the University of Copenhagen, Herlev Hospital, Denmark, for a short term scientific mission in the framework of the COST Action TD1104 (“European Network for the Development of Electroporationbased Technologies and Treatments”).

The research activities include the framework of bioelectromagnetics and deals with the design and realization of high voltage, ns pulse generators for in vitro biological applications, the study of biological effects of pulsed electric fields on mammalian cells with experimental and modeling approaches, and the employment of numerical and experimental dosimetry techniques for in vitro exposures to RF electromagnetic fields, the risk assessment related to exposure to electromagnetic fields in living and working environments. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Young Researcher Award at the “1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Environmental Technologies.”
