In June 1996 he joined the University of Rome ?La Sapienza?, where he is Associate Professor since 1998. Dr. Lombardo is involved in research projects funded by the Italian Space Agency on multiparametric SAR image processing, and in projects on advanced radar detection, data fusion and radiolocalization. He is also Co-Investigator of the radar sounding instruments for the space exploration missions Rosetta (ESA/ASI) and Mars Express (ASI/NASA).
Dr. Lombardo?s research has been reported in over hundred publications in international technical journals and conferences. He served in the paper selection committee of the IEEE Radar Conference 2001 (Atlanta,GA) and as Technical Chairman of the IEEE/ISPRS Joint Workshop on Remote Sensing and Data Fusion over Urban Areas (Rome 2001). Dr. Lombardo is Associate Editor for Radar Systems for the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems. He is also recipient of the 2001 Barry Carlton Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems.
