Curriculum Vitae:

Ottavia Jedrkiewicz has received her Master degree in Physics (cum Laude) in 1997 at the University of Rome La Sapienza (Italy) and her PhD in theoretical quantum optics at Essex University (UK) in 2001. She has been a Post-Doc from 2001 till 2006 and a Tenure Track researcher of CNISM (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Scienze Fisiche della Materia) till December 2011, working in Como at the Ultrafast Non Linear Optics laboratory of Insubria University, where she has performed experimental research activity in Classical and Quantum nonlinear optics, with a strong interest in spatio-temporal coherence and correlation effects in non linear parametric processes. Since January 2012 Ottavia Jedrkiewicz has been a permanent researcher of CNR-IFN  and presently leads the research activity in the Ultrafast Non Linear Optics laboratory of Como. Her research activity concerns on one hand the study of the spatio-temporal characteristics of the radiation generated in parametric down-conversion processes, and of the spatial and spectral properties of the reconverted radiation through the inverse process of sum-frequency generation; on the other hand in the last two years she has also been working on laser micromachining,  focusing on the spatio-temporal pulse/beam shaping  by linear and non linear means, for application to microfabrication and cutting of transparent materials. 

Ottavia Jedrkiewicz is author of more than 50 regular papers published on refereed international journals and of more than 50 conference abstracts. She has been co-director of the 2011 STELLA school (School for training in Experiments with Lasers and Laser Applications,
