Speaker's Details

Prof. Antonella Macagnano

Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research-National Research Council, Italy

Antonella Macagnano received the Biological Science’s Degree in 1993 at Lecce University and the Professional’s Degree in 1994. Since 2001 she is Research Scientist at the National Research Council (CNR). She has been leader (2001–2013) of the job-order entitled “Bio-inspired Sensoristic Systems and Technologies for Space and Human Safety” at Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) of CNR. Since 2013, she is Researcher and Leader of the action called “High-Performance Sensors and Sensing Systems for Monitoring Air Quality and Environment” at Institute of Atmospheric Pollutant Research (IIA) of CNR. She has been cooperating with many International and National scientists for designing and studying novel sensors (gravimetric, conductive, capacitive) and bio-inspired sensing strategies, based on nanostructured and biofunctionalized materials for environmental and biomedical applications, within several projects (among them, various as a leader). At present, she is member of the Management Committee of a European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action MP1206 entitled “Electrospun Nano-fibres for Bio-inspired Composite Materials and Innovative Industrial Applications” (2013–2017) and the leader of the Working Group devoted to Industrial/Technical applications.
