Invited Speakers

Jolanta KARPOWICZ received her Master’s and Engineering degree in Medical and Nuclear Electronics and D.Sc. (Habilitation) in Biomedical Engineering from the Warsaw Technical University (Poland); as well as Ph.D. (Doctorate) in Environmental Engineering from the Central Institute for Labour Protection—National Research Institute (CIOP-PIB) (Warszawa, Poland), where she is a researcher, in the research unit accredited in the evaluation of electromagnetic field and the calibration of measurement devices. Her main area of research is the electromagnetic environment, and its influence on humans and environmental safety, focusing primarily on worker safety through measurements, numerical modeling, safety standardization, and legislation, as well as education - under national research programs and international collaboration (such as European Framework Programs, COST Actions and EMF-NET European network covering broad range of electromagnetic research issues and services, followed by EMF-MED action). She has contributed to over 300 journal research articles, conference short papers, book chapters, guidebooks – supporting many issues as the scientific editor of books or journal issues, and more than 400 expert opinions in the field of evaluating electromagnetic hazards commissioned mainly by industry and healthcare institutions. She also served as a reviewer for many international scientific journals (such as JOSE, Bioelectromagnetics, IJERPH, International Journal of Radiobiology, Electronics, Sensors), as well as reviewer and a committee member to many scientific conferences. She is a member of the international societies: BioEM, URSI, ICOH. Her activities also covere collaboration with international scientific and technical bodies: URSI/Commission K—Electromagnetics in Biology and Medicine, the IEEE /International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (IEEE/ICES) and the IEC/CENELEC/Polish Standardization Committee. She was an expert in electromagnetic hazards at work to the European Council, the European Commission and the Ministry of Labour in Poland. She was also elected to the Madical Physics Committee by Polish Academy of Sciences.
