On Friday February 17th, ’17
Room P 1.4 (ex FA-1-D)
Engineering Department ‘Enzo Ferrari’
University of Modena and Reggio Emilia
LAURA GIARRE’ will give a seminar entitled
Past, Present and Future Research and Interests
Past: Starting from some of my recent lines of research and projects (identification, dynamical networks, smart grid, IOT, assistive technologies), I frame them in an unique picture: a Smart City offering new services based on pervasive technologies. Present: I focus my attention to two recent projects for the visually impaired people I am involved into: Arianna Project – a Smartphone-based Navigation System and 5th sense Project – Situational Awareness using spatial navigation and object identification. Future: Possible integration of my competences and international networks with Department research lines.
Prof. Laura Giarré is an engineer and a professor, working at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Department of Engineering, Modena, Italy. Her research interests are primarily in Identification and Networked Systems. Laura Giarré received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the Università di Firenze, Florence, Italy and the Ph.D. degree in System Engineering from the Università di Bologna, Bologna, Italy, in 1986 and 1992, respectively. She has held visiting positions in the University of California at Santa Barbara (1999 and 2006) and CSAIL, MIT (2015). She was Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy (1993-1998) and Associate Professor at the Università di Palermo, Palermo, Italy (1998-2016). She has served as Associate Editor of Systems and Control Letters, (1999-2012) and IEEE Transaction on Automatic Control (2012-2015). In 2010 she was vice-chair of SING6, chair of the Challenges ABF MIT Workshop in 2012.2013 e 2015 and General Char of MED’14, in 2014. She is member of the Advisory Board of the Andrea Bocelli Foundation . Since 2011, she has developed a strong interest in assistive technology. She is the co-founder of In.sight, srl.
I have reported on an excel file the number of professor (FP), associate professor (AP) and researcher (E) in Italy, divided by gender.
I have taken as example three macro sector of engineering (9G:Control+biomedical), (9H:telecommunications and electromagnetism) (9F: Computer Science)
One macro sector of Mathematics (1A) and one macro sector of Biology (5B)
Clearly in biology and mathematics the number of graduated male and female is almost the same, while in engineering is around the 20%, but in all cases, you can see that the number of male in higher position is incredibly higher.
I reported the percentage of female with respect to the total number.
here the data:

pero’ anche i musei vaticani sono belli..
