Cinzia Da Via

Topic: “Climate Change and Wildfires: Detection, Prevention, Mitigation and Control” (13th July 9.30 AM ET)

Cinzia Da Vià received her PhD in Physics at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, working at the European Center for Particle Physics (CERN) on radiation detectors and their spinoff applications to medicine, while being awarded a CERN fellowship. In 2006 she formed and led an international collaboration to develop a novel detector design (3D) with unprecedented radiation tolerance and speed, which was successfully installed in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012. She is the Independent Committee co-chair of the EU ATTRACT Initiative which supports innovative radiation imaging technology research projects in Europe and is the Chief Editor of the Frontiers in PhysicsRadiation Detectors and Imaging Journal and co-authored a book on 3D-radiation detectors. She is currently a member of the European Physical Society Technology and Innovation Group and a member of the IEEE Panel on Climate Change. She is a regular Speaker, Chair, and International Scientific Committee Member of several conferences and Instrumentation Schools. Since 2016 she has shared her time between Stony Brook University and The University of Manchester, UK.
