Licia Capodiferro received her Dr. Ing. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy, in 1986 and was awarded "Premio Marconi Italiana 1985- 1986" for the best Italian thesis in the field of signal and image processing. In1987 she joined the Fondazione Ugo Bordoni where she currently works as head of the Department of Information Processing and Management .

Her main research interests are in the field of multimedia communications, from digital television to internet, with a focus on the development of algorithms that realize the transfer and allow the use of images and videos on the different types of terminals available to state of the art.

Recently in collaboration with the "Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma", she developed a set of projects for the multimedia tour of archaelogical and historical interest sites, with the objective of enabling the visitor to move among the various monuments in dialogue with a smartphone (an audio-video interactive guide) receiving a narration through text, audio, images and videos.

As a part of a collaboration with the Faculty of Electronic Engineering of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and the University of "Roma Tre", she trained several University students coordinating their thesis dealing with the development of innovative and efficient algorithms in the field of multimedia applications.

She has published exstensively in international contexts contributing to conferences, journal, books and technical reports.

Since 2001 she is a Lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of "Roma Tre": teaching "Signal Theory" ("Teoria dei Segnali", 2001-2006), "Electronic Systems for Cultural Heritage" ("Sistemi Elettronici per i Beni Culturali", 2008 - 2011) and "Application strategies for renewable energy resources and cultural heritage" ("Strategie applicative per le fonti rinnovabili e i beni Culturali", since 2012).
