Dr Paola Sansoni

Associate Editor

CNR-INO

Brief Bio

Dr. Paola Sansoni graduated in physics in 1992 at the Florence University, where she received a PhD in 1994 from the Graduate School in Optics. For 6 years she worked in remote sensing research, with scattering simulations and lidar measurements. Since 1993 she works in the development of optoelectronic systems for quality control in industry, for environmental monitoring and for applications in the field of cultural heritage preservation. Her current work as National Institute of Optics of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-INO) researcher is addressed to industrial and environmental applications of optoelectronics, to Photometry and Lighting, to the research on alternative energies and, in particular, to the exploitation of solar energy. Within this research line she is responsible of projects to develop solar collectors for energetic, thermal or photovoltaic applications and for their use in lighting technique and cultural heritage field.
