Sara Adda

ARPA Piemonte


Sara Adda received the M. Sc. (cum laude) degree in physics and the postgraduate specialisation degree in health physics from Turin University, Italy, in 1998 and 2003 respectively.

She worked for one year (1998-1999) at ENEA Casaccia (Rome) within the Interdepartmental Computing and High Performance Networks Project, implementing a system for the simulation of electromagnetic field dynamics in complex environments through the use of massively parallel architectures. Since 1999 she has been working in ARPA Piedmont, in the Physical and Technological Risk Department, dealing with control and monitoring of non-ionizing radiation and the development of theoretical forecasting/numerical calculation methods, both in the low and high frequency ranges. She also participates in the CEI (Italian Electrotechnical Committee) working groups, for the drafting of technical standards on measurement and evaluation methods for human emf exposure, and she deals with the theoretical and practical aspects related to the measurement of electromagnetic fields in the workplace. In this context, she is the representative of the Piedmont Region in the interregional technical coordination group.

She participates in national (National System for Envronmental Protection), european and international collaborative projects, on methods and techniques for measuring and evaluating human exposure to emf both in the workplace and in the living environment.
