From 2009 to 2010 she continues to focus ont the research initiated with her thesis developing a growing interest in aerodynamics and aero acoustic associated to drones (UAV).

In 2010 Chiara starts her professional career joining the Business Unit for the design and development of Air Traffic Management System in Selex SI (Leonardo).

During the first years in Leonardo, she focuses on Human Machine Interface, Radar Tracks, flight plan trajectory optimization, and detection of conflicts between aircrafts.

In 2013 she obtains the role of Automation Specialist for the project related to the development of the new Hammad airport in Doha, Qatar. She will then grow up in responsibility roles regarding design, requirements definition, verification, and validation of multiple projects related to Air Traffic management today operative in Vietnam, Ukraine, Turkey, Luxemburg, Bulgaria. Chiara will also be product reference for european projects related to the unification of rules for air traffic control (Sesar).

From 2015 Chiara moves to Melbourne, Australia to join Thales for the development of OneSKY project, the biggest and most complex air traffic management system ever developed in the world, the first one merging civil and military control and stakeholders. The system will be characterized by strict safety and security constraints and will allow the simultaneous control of about 11% of the whole world wide air traffic.

In OneSKY she initially has the responsibility of developing the military control tower, when succeeding in this role, she evolves in the role of System Engineering leader managing the entire functional baseline of the project and a team of Senior System Engineers. 

Chiara has today full responsibility of the engineering process starting from customer needs analysis to requirements derivation, modelling of the solution taking into account safety, security, human factor constraints.

In this role Chiara leads meetings with customer counterparts and plan the activities of the team she leads.

Parallel to the leadership role, Chiara continues her research for the development and integration of drones in the existing air traffic management systems (UTM) and for the application of Artificial Intelligence concepts within Air Traffic Management environment. 

Scientific results

During her university thesis and research experience, Chiara obtained numerical and experimental results regarding the aerodynamics associated with end flaps and winglets, identifying the wing configurations that guarantee the highest performance in terms of safety for a UAV seaplane.

During her work experience in Italy, Chiara managed, as reference for the System Engineering area, numerous projects related to air traffic control that are successfully completed and now operational.

She also collaborated in the study and implementation of a new verification and validation process for integrated software, with evident gains in terms of testing time and early detection of problems during the product maturation phase.

She is repeatedly selected as a Leonardo representative and speaker at global conference, and she is responsible for presenting the company's product portfolio at the Air Traffic Management World congress from 2011 to 2015.

During her work experience in Australia, Chiara is a reference for the analysis and functional definition of the "cutting-edge technologies" regarding flight coordination, use of airspace, and optimization of traffic flows from the approach to the runway. This translates into actual results regarding fewer delayed flights and optimization of trajectories with consequent reduction of fuels and CO2 emissions.

As a System Engineering manager, collaborating with Lean management and agile experts, Chiara studies and implements improvements to the production process, obtaining a 30% reduction on the time required for the functional analysis

Position/Role

Director of the Vascular System of Cancer Research Unit at the IFOM Research Institute

 

Professional career

After graduating in Biological Sciences at the University of Bologna, she moved to Milan to work at the Mario Negri Institute of Pharmacological Research, where she studied the pathological mechanisms underlying thrombosis and cardiovascular disease.From 1978 to 1980 she worked in Canada, in one of the leading research groups in the cardiovascular sector; during that period she developed techniques for the isolation and culture of endothelial cells that make up the wall of blood vessels, in order to be able to study their normal and pathological characteristics in in vitro models. Back to Italy, she organized the Laboratory of Vascular Biology at the Mario Negri Institute in Milan, which she directed until 1993, with periods of work abroad at Harvard Medical School in Boston, at the Hôpital Bicêtre in Paris and at the Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem. From 1993 to 1996 she directed the Laboratoire d'Hematologie of the Nuclear Energy Center in Grenoble. Again in Italy, in Milan, she took part in the implementation of the FIRC project to create a new institute entirely dedicated to cancer research. Elisabetta Dejana is also a professor of General Pathology at the Department of Oncology and Emato-oncology of the University of Milan and at the Department of Genetic Immunology and Pathology at the University of Uppsala, Sweden.

Scientific results

The study of vascular cell biology has continued in recent years with a new goal: to understand the process of formation of new blood vessels, angiogenesis, in the embryo and during the growth of a tumor. At the birth of IFOM, in 2000, she was among the first scientists to animate its laboratories. Thus, an IFOM research program aimed at studying the process of blood vessel formation and the development of therapeutic strategies that, by acting on it, could inhibit tumor growth, was launched under her direction.

Scientific results

Maria De Paola's research activity takes place mainly in the field of labor and education economics, public policy evaluation and political economy. In the field of labor and education economics she examined the determinants of students' academic performance, on-the-job training processes and professional careers and work organization. She devoted particular attention to gender differences trying to understand the role played by differences in attitudes and non-cognitive abilities. To this end, she used both observational data and data deriving from field experiments. For example, using data on national scientific certification, she examined the tendency of women to avoid competitive contexts and, for the same purpose, conducted several experiments with students. As part of the evaluation of public policies, she has conducted studies to estimate the impact of some important legislative interventions, such as the points license, the Brunetta law on absenteeism in public administration, gender quotas, the “fruit in schools” program.

Economy and Finance area

Competences: political economy

Keywords: education economy, gender, labor market

Region: Lazio


Position/Role

Economist in the labor market division and economic structure of the economics and statistics department of the Bank of Italy

Professional career

After graduating in Economics and Social Sciences and a three-year degree in Business Economics from the Bocconi University, she continued her education with a PhD in Economics from the London School of Economics, obtained in 2016. In December 2014 she joined the Bank of Italy as an economist. In the past she worked for short periods at the Rodolfo Debenedetti Foundation, the European Commission and the Center of Economic Performance (LSE). Her research interests are related to labor economics, in particular to the economics of education and gender.

Scientific results

The research activity of Marta De Philippis takes place in the field of the labor market and education systems. In this context she studied the consequences on the quality of teaching and research of university professors of incentive systems that are strongly (or exclusively) result-oriented in terms of academic publications. She also studied the determinants of gender differences in obtaining purely scientific degrees (STEM) and, on average, higher paid, leading them in part to preferences regarding future job opportunities. She then contributed to the analysis of female participation and how it also depends on intra-family interactions, showing that pension reforms have greatly increased female participation, and male participation mainly through intra-family interactions, and that a reduction in time displacement would have beneficial effects on female participation, including through the effect on their partners.

The research activity of Veronica De Romanis takes place in the field of European economic policy, the female labor market and fiscal and monetary policy in Europe during the financial crisis. For example, in the book “Il Caso Germania” the various tools put in place to finance aid to countries in difficulty are illustrated, such as the European Stability Mechanism, but also the new rules agreed on the fiscal side (the Fiscal Compact, the Six Pack , the Two Pack, etc.) and the unconventional tools introduced by the European Central Bank (the SMP, the MTO and the QE). European governance is explained from the point of view of Germany, a country that has tried to reconcile "solidarity" with states in difficulty with "responsibility" among the economies that share the single currency. In particular, debtors were asked for austerity measures in exchange for aid. The latter were considered by various analysts to be the cause of the deep recession that countries like Greece had to face. In the book "Austerity makes us grow" he analyzed the impact of fiscal consolidation policies implemented in several European countries, including Spain, Greece, Ireland and Portugal, on economic growth. Particular attention was paid to the Italian case. The book shows that in countries where "good" austerity is implemented, that is the mix of unproductive spending cuts and reforms, the economy starts to grow again. When, on the other hand, governments concentrated the adjustment on the revenue side, the effects were recessive. Moreover, implementing "austerity" measures does not necessarily make the elections lose. In countries where "good" austerity has been implemented, the current premieres have been reconfirmed.

Scientific results

Anita De Rossi has long been involved in oncogenic retroviruses research. Her early efforts were directed towards investigating virus-host interactions in the murine system, including the role of endogenous retroviruses on leukemia development. Since 1983, her research has shifted from murine to human retroviruses (HTLV/HIV) in both experimental models and clinical settings.  

She has been involved in several international  projects concerning pediatric HIV/AIDS (WHO 1989-1990, and Pediatric European Network for treatment of AIDS, PENTA,  since 1991); her studies in this field addressed the virological and immunological correlates of pediatric disease outcome  and are some of the first to indicate that HIV infection from  mother-to-child HIV  mainly  occurs during intrapartum period  (AIDS 1992; J Clin Invest 1996)  and that host factors may restrict HIV infection (AIDS 1995; J Inf Dis 2001).

Her  interest has expanded to studying tumors in immunocompromised patients, with particular regard to EBV-related lymphomagenesis  in HIV-infected or transplant patients, and  more recently to studying cellular replicative potential driven by telomere/telomerase in virus-driven and virus-independent malignancies.  Her studies are some of the first demonstrating that LMP1 of EBV activates at transcriptional level the expression of TERT, the catalytic component of telomerase, which in turn contributes to preserving the expression of EBV latency proteins, a prerequisite for EBV-driven transformation (J Virol 2008). The consequence is that inhibition of TERT triggers the activation of the viral lytic cycle with death of the infected cells (Clin Cancer Res 2013).

Lastly, her studies demonstrated that quantification of TERT in plasma may represent a minimally invasive tool for monitoring malignancies (Clin Cancer Res 2008) and response to therapy (Br J Cancer 2018). In addition, her studies provide the rationale for considering inhibition of TERT a useful approach for setting up new therapeutic strategies for virus-dependent and virus-independent malignancies (Clin Cancer Res 2013; Cell Death Dis 2016).
