讲座主题：Remote Sensing and Human Activities
主讲嘉宾：Paolo Gamba教授（IEEE Fellow，意大利帕维亚大学教授）
Urban areas correspond only to 1% of the Earth surface, but are the source of most of the wealth of the planet. They also concentrate population and transports, becoming more and more prone to pollution, and serious issues affecting the human health. Remote sensing can help to monitor not only the extent of urban areas and they characteristics in any part of the globe, but can also to analyze population patterns and changes, as well as provide indicators for human health by means of air and water pollution mapping, and by tracking the variables that are essential for the spread of viruses and illnesses.
Paolo Gamba is currently Full Professor of Telecommunications at the University of Pavia, Italy. He received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering “cum laude” from the University of Pavia, Italy, in 1989, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the same University in 1993. He is a Fellow of IEEE, and from 2009 to 2013 he has served as Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters. He has been member of the AdCom and Chapter Committee Chair for the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society from 2014 to 2016, Latin American activity Liaison in the same period, has served in 2016 as Vice President for Professional Activities, and is currently Executive Vice President of the same Society.
He has been invited to give keynote lectures and tutorials in several occasions about urban remote sensing, data fusion, EO data and risk management. He published more than 130 papers in international peer-review journals and presented nearly 290 research works in workshops and conferences.
