ISSIA CNR – Genova

Roberta Ferretti was born in Alessandria, Italy, on January 6, 1982. She received the B.S. and M.S. degrees “summa cum laude” in Physics from the University of  Eastern Piedmont, Alessandria, in 2005 and 2008, respectively.
Since July 2013, she joined the “Autonomous robotic systems and control” group of the CNR-ISSIA in Genoa, as a research fellow. The topic of her research activity is the standardization of the architecture for monitoring and control of the automation system of a ship according to the requirements Safety Return to Port and Safety Management System. In parallel with this, she is also working on sonar data analysis for acoustic seabed identification and characterization.
