  Lina Sarro

Lina (Pasqualina M.) Sarro received the Laurea degree in Physics (magna cum laude) with specialization in Solid-State Physics, from the University of Naples, Italy, in 1980. From 1979 till 1981 she was a research assistant associated with Professor F.P.Califano in the Semiconductor Devices Group of the Department of Electrical Engineering, working on new low cost fabrication techniques for silicon solar cells and thin film solar cells. From 1981 to 1983, she was a post-doctoral fellow associated with Professor J.J.Loferski in the Photovoltaic Research Group of the Division of Engineering, Brown University, Rhode Island, U.S.A. where she worked on thin-film photovoltaic cell fabrication by chemical spray pyrolysis.

In October 1983 she joined the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory of the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands as a research assistant associated with Professor S.Middelhoek, working on infrared sensors based on integrated silicon thermopiles fabricated by IC technology and silicon micromachining. On October 1, 1987, she received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering. Since then, she has been with the Delft Institute of Microelectronics and Submicron Technology (DIMES), at the Delft University, where she is responsible for research on integrated silicon sensor technology, electronic material processing and novel microstructures. In April 1996 she became Associate Professor in the Electronic Components, Materials and Technology Laboratory of the Delft University and in December 2001 A. van Leeuwenhoek Professor in the same department. Since January 2004 she heads the Electronic Components, Technology, and Materials laboratory (ECTM).

In September 2004 she received the Eurosensors Fellow Award for her contributions in the field of sensor technology. In April 2006 she became member of the Dutch Royal Academy of Science (KNAW) and in November 2006 she was elected IEEE Fellow. She has authored and co-authored more than 300 journal and conference papers. She acts as reviewer for a number of technical journals and she is a technical program committee member for several international conferences (IEEE MEMS, IEEE Sensors, Eurosensors, Transducers). She was the Technical Program Chair for the first three IEEE Sensors Conferences (2002- 2004) and she was the General co-chair of IEEE MEMS 2009 Conference along with Prof. Christofer Hierold.
