    Personal Details

     

    Nationality: Italian

    Date of Birth: 07October 1980

    Place of Birth: La Spezia

     

    Work Experience

     

     

    From 01/2011 She is an Scientific Officer at the European Commission - Joint Research Centre, Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen, Maritime Affairs Unit.

    The main task is to carry out research in the development of the JRC software for the detection of vessel in Synthetic Aperture Radar images (CosmoSkymed, Terrasar-X, Radarsat 1 and 2, ENVISAT) and support the Vessel Detection System campaign organization in what relates data analysis and databases.

    At this aim She is also deeply involved on the in house design of the Maritime Surveillance Platform, specifically for what concern the Pilot Project on the Maritime Awareness for Counter Piracy. Tasks involve the development of Multi Target Tracking System for Cooperative Data Source, such as satellite and terrestrial AIS, LRIT, VMS, with particular attention to advanced ship tracks prediction algorithm. She is also involved on data fusion algorithm development to couple the SAR ship detections with the cooperative ship reported positions.

    She is working in the FP7 Project ARGOMARINE (Automatic Oil-Spill Recognition and Geopositioning integrated in Marine Monitoring Network). The main task is the analysis of collected SAR images for ship detection and to act as an internal reviewer for which regards the cross validation of meteo-ocean data, oil spill detections along with the forecast scenario prospected by the other project partner.


    From 01/2010 to 12/2010 She is an ITT Visual Information Solution (www.ittvis.com) contractor working as Remote Sensing Scientist under the remote sensing bid issued by NATO Undersea Research Centre (www.nurc.nato.int). Main duties involve the development of models, algorithms and techniques for extraction of geophysical parameters from SAR sensors, image analysis and pattern recognition algorithms and techniques for detection and tracking of oceanic phenomena in particular under Tropical Hurricane conditions. Recently development of an operational hurricane SAR tool installed and running at CSTARS (Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing).

    From 03/2009 to 12/2009 She is a contractor at the Applied Research Department of the NATO Undersea Research Centre of La Spezia, working on Wind Field Retrieval from SAR images. Design and execute the     processes needed for including ocean prediction data into WiSAR Sartool, including format conversion, image geocoding. Develop Tropical Cyclone Eye detection algorithm.
