Maria Raposo
LIBPhys, NOVA School of Science and Technology

Brief Bio
Maria Raposo received the Ph.D. degree in Materials Sciences and Engineering by Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil in 1999 and, since 2000, is professor at Physics Department of Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, lecturing Solid State Physics, Surface and Interfaces Technology, Conducting Polymers, Molecular Electronics and Physics of Functional Macromolecular Systems. She is Head of the Functional Molecular Systems group since 2008, whose research interests include electric and optical properties of ultra-thin films of polymers and biomolecules, interfaces and nano-technology, colloids, molecular architectures for electronics, photonics and magnetism, biomimetic membranes and radiation effect in biological systems.
Agostino Iadicicco
Department of Engineering, University of Naples “Parthenope”

Brief Bio
Agostino Iadicicco received the master’s degree in electronic engineering cum laude and the Ph.D. degree in 2002 and 2005, respectively. Currently, he is full professor of electronics and Coordinator of the PhD program in “Information and Communication Technology and Engineering” at Department of engineering of University of Naples “Parthenope”, Italy. He serves as the Associate Editor for the IEEE Sensors Journal. Since 2002, his research activity has been focused on optoelectronics and photonics devices for sensing. He is currently involved in the design, realization and testing of novel in-fiber devices in standard and unconventional fibers including polarization maintaining and photonic bandgap fibers. His work in this area encompasses the development and practical application of sensors for the measurement of a range of physical, chemical, and biological parameters.
