Short Bio:

Chiara Petrioli is professor of Computer Science, coordinator of the Ph.D. program, and director of the Sensor Networks and Embedded Systems laboratory (SENSES lab) in the department of Computer Science of the University of Rome “La Sapienza.” She also leads the Cyber Physical System lab of “La Sapienza” center for Cyber Intelligence and Information Security, and is a founding partner of “La Sapienza” spinoff WSENSE S.r.l. Professor Petrioli research interests concern the design and optimization of future wireless, embedded, IoT and cyber physical systems. Prof. Petrioli is member of the steering committee of IEEE SECON, was program co-chair of IEEE INFOCOM 2016, workshop co-chair of ACM MobiCom 2014, and general chair of ACM SenSys 2013. She has been member of the steering committee and associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, member of the steering committee of ACM SenSys, associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, member of the executive committee of ACM SIGMOBILE, associate editor of Elsevier Computer Communications, guest editor of special issues for IEEE Access, Elsevier Ad Hoc Networks, Elsevier Physical Communications, and has been program co-chair of leading conferences in the field, such as ACM MobiCom and IEEE SECON. Prof. Petrioli has published over a hundred and fifty papers in prominent international journals and conferences (over 4700 citations; h-index 36). She has been the PI of over twenty national and international research projects, serving as coordinator of two EC projects (FP7 projects GENESI and SUNRISE) highlighted as success stories on the Digital Agenda of Europe and featured by international mass media including RAI SuperQuark and Presa Diretta, Wired USA, the Guardian, Bild magazine, and National Geographics. Her research has resulted in international patents and in award-winning innovative technologies. She is a pioneer of the Internet of Underwater Things, an area on which she has led the development of breakthrough technologies listed in the NT100 Top “Social Global Techs changing our lives 2016.” Prof. Petrioli was a Fulbright scholar.
