Biographical sketch

Miriam Serena Vitiello received the Master degree in Physics (cum laude) in 2001 and the PhD Degree in Physics in 2006 from University of Bari.

From 2006 to 2008 she was a Post-Doctoral Research assistant at the University of Bari. From October 2008 to January 2010 she was researcher at CNR-INFM LIT3 in Bari.
Since 2010 she is staff research scientist at the NEST Laboratory – CNR-Nanoscience Institute.
Since 2015 she is Contract Professor of Condensed Matter Physics at Scuola Normale Superiore.

She was visiting scientist for short research stages at the Technical University of Delft (April 2004, December 2004), at the Universität of Munchen (July 2004) and at the University of Paris VII (2006).

Dr. Vitiello coordinates the activities of Terahertz Photonics at CNR-NANO NEST and she is a member of the scientific committee of more than 40 international conferences in the field of photonic devices.

She is co-author of more than 150 refereed papers on international journals, holds 1 patent and delivered more than 70 invited talks at international conferences and more than 30 lectures at International Universities.

She is the recipient of the, Guido Dorso Research prize 2016, the SPIE 2015 Early Career Award, the "Sergio Panizza" award of the Italian Physical Society (2012). For her scientific research Miriam Vitiello has been granted an International Scientific Author Award (USA, 2005) and two National Young Author Award (2004,2005).
