COST Success Story

Chair of the Action

Lara Pajewski received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering cum laude from “Roma Tre” University of Rome, Italy, and the Ph.D. in Applied Electromagnetics and Electrophysics Sciences from "La Sapienza" University of Rome, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. From 2004 to 2008 she worked at “Roma Tre” University as a Technician and since 2008 she is a Researcher in Electromagnetics.

Her main research interests are in Ground Penetrating Radar and its applications, solution of electromagnetic forward- and inverse-scattering problems, antennas design and characterization, synthesis of photonic and electromagnetic band-gap metamaterials, electromagnetic pollution and radiation protection.

She is the author/co-author of more than 150 scientific works on international books, journals and conference proceedings. She is Western-Europe Editor for the Taylor&Francis Journal “Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation”, since 2011 convenes the Session “Civil Engineering Applications of Ground Penetrating Radar” at the annual European Geosciences Union General Assembly (EGU-GA), and since 2013 is a member of the Scientific Committee of the biennial International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar (IWAGPR).

At “Roma Tre” University, she holds the "Laboratory of Microwaves and Antennas" course for the Laurea in Electronic Engineering (Bachelor's Degree) and the “Electromagnetic Instrumentation" course for the Laurea Magistralis in “Communication and Information Technology Engineering”, in “Electronic Engineering” and in “Bioengineering” (Master’s Degrees).

She was involved in COST Action MP0702 "Towards functional sub-wavelength photonic structures" as a Working Group Member (2008-2012). She is participating to COST Action TU1206 "SUBURBAN: A European network to improve understanding and use of the ground beneath our cities" (2013-2017) as a Member of the Management Committee.

Dr. Pajewski is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), IEEE Antennas and Propagation - Microwave Theory and Techniques - Geoscience and Remote Sensing – Women in Engineering Societies, European Geosciences Union, Italian Interuniversity Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT), and Italian Society of Electromagnetics (SIEM).
