Marta Cavagnaro received the cum laude M.S. degree in electronic engineering in 1993 from Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, with a thesis on the power transmission with microwave beams. In 1997, she received the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from Sapienza University of Rome, discussing a thesis on the evaluation of power absorption in people exposed to the electromagnetic fields associated with mobile communication systems. From 2000 to 2012 she was an Assistant Professor of electromagnetic fields at the Department of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications, Sapienza University of Rome. She currently is an Associate Professor of electromagnetic fields at the same department. Her research activity is mainly devoted to dosimetric aspects of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and biological systems, with reference to both regulatory aspects and medical applications. Her interests include numerical methods for solving Maxwell’s equations, evaluation of power absorption and temperature increase in subjects under different exposure conditions, electromagnetic fields measurement techniques, interstitial techniques for therapeutic use of microwave energy, and UWB radars for the monitoring of the cardiorespiratory activity. She is author or coauthor of more than 160 scientific publications considering both international journals and international and national congresses.
