Vice-President and CEO

Cecilia Occhiuzzi received the M.S. degree cum laude in Medical Engineering in 2008 from Tor Vergata University, Rome, discussing a Thesis on the application of the emerging RFID Passive Technology for the monitoring and the diagnosis of Motion Sleep Diseases and the PhD in Geoinfomation in Dec. 2011 about Wireless Health Monitoring by means of wearable and implantable RFID devices. 

In 2008, She was at the University of Warwick (UK), working on design and implementation of wireless SAW chemical sensors. In 2010 She joined the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, U.S.). Her work was mainly focused on the design of passive RFID sensors for Structural Health Monitoring and gas detection, by means of carbon nanotubes. 
At the moment, she has a Post Doc position at the University of “Tor Vergata”, her fields of interest are the Human Health Monitoring and the Environmental Monitoring by means of RF Technologies, and the Antenna Systems for Satellite Communications. 

She teaches the Bachelor of Science course “Laboratory of Telecommunication” at University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and, in the same University, she serves as Teacher Assistant for several Master of Science Electromagnetics and Antenna Design courses. 

She is co-author of ten Journal Papers, more than twenty International Conference Contributions and a Book Chapter. She serves as reviewers for IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, IEEE Transaction on Microwave Theory and Technique, International Journal of Antennas and Propagation, Elsevier Materials Science and Engineering: B, Elsevier Simulation Modeling Practice and Theory. Finally, she holds two patents on sensor RFID systems. 

In 2011 She has been awarded the IEEE APS Doctoral Award. In 2012 she received the Best Thesis Award at the 2012 RFID Journal Live (Orlando, USA) and, in the same year, the Best Student Paper Award at EUCAP 2012 (Prague).

In 2012 She was in the Technical Program Committee of the 2012 RFID-TA, Nice.
