Short Bio:

Gaia Maselli is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the Sapienza University of Rome - Italy. She received the Laurea Degree in Computer Science and the Ph.D. in Computer Science both from University of Pisa, Italy. She was Postdoc researcher at Sapienza University of Rome. Prior to Rome University, she was junior researcher at Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Pisa. Her research interests focus on architectural and networking aspects of wireless networks. In particular, her current work focuses on the design and evaluation of networking protocols for RFID systems, sensor ad hoc networks, and cognitive radio networks. Dr. Maselli has significant experience in working on European projects. In particular, she is task leader in the European ARTEMIS CHIRON project. She worked in the FP7 EU projects SENSEI and SENDORA, the ARTEMIS projects eDiana, the FP6 IST projects E-Sense, WiSeNts, the FP5 IST project MobileMAN.
