Simona Di Meo was born in 1992 in Foggia (FG), Italy. After her high school studies on scientific area (Liceo Scientifico Statale “A. Volta”) in Foggia, she moved to Pavia. Here, she received her Bachelor Degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering, on October, 27th 2014. The title of her BS thesis was “Caratterizzazione di materiali biologici per diagnostica tumorale a onde millimetriche”, reporting the dielectric characterization of different animal tissues, preparatory for the experimental campaign on human breast tissues in the frequency range [0.5 – 50] GHz. Afterwards she obtained the Master Degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Pavia, with final evaluation of 110/110 cum Laude on October, 27th 2016. The title of her MSc thesis was “Feasibility study of an innovative mm-wave imaging system for early-stage breast cancer detection”, and it was focused on the freasibility study in terms of link budget evaluation of a system, exploiting a multi-static radar architecture, with a central working frequency of 30 GHz and a 20-GHz bandwidth intended for breast cancer detection. This activity was in collaboration with the European Institute of Oncology (Istituto Europeo di Oncologia, IEO), in Milan, and it was supported by the Italian Association for Cancer Research (Associazione Italiana per la Ricerca sul Cancro, AIRC). The proposal of this work won the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Eugene F. Knott Memorial Pre-Doctoral Research Grant, April competition, in 2015. Since October 1st 2016, she is a Ph.D. Student at the Microwave Laboratory of the University of Pavia, and her research interests are about the mm-wave imaging for breast cancer detection.
