Leila Guerriero received her "laurea" degree in Physics from La Sapienza University of Rome in 1986, and the Ph.D. degree in Electromagnetism from Tor Vergata University of Rome in 1991.
Since 1994, she has been a permanent researcher at Tor Vergata University where she is now Associate Professor holding a course on Earth Satellite Monitoring.
Her activities at Tor Vergata University are mainly concerned on modelling microwave scattering and emissivity from agricultural and forested areas.
She participated to several international projects, among them:
In 1988 she was involved in a cooperation between JPL and Italian National Research Council for investigations on geophysical applications of Imaging Spectrometry in InfraRed and Visible Remote Sensing.
In 1995 she participated to the ESA project on Radiometric Polarimetric of ocean surfaces.
In 1999-2001 she participated at the EEC concerted action ERA-ORA whose objective was to improve radar data analysis and utilization.
More recently, she has been part of the teams of the ESA projects "Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity Satellite" "Development of SAR inversion algorithms for land applications", "Use of Bistatic Microwave Measurements for Earth Observation", "LEIMON: Land monitoring with navigation signals", "GRASS: GNSS-Reflectometry Analysis for Biomass Monitoring".
She authored more than 100 papers on national and international journals, and conference proceedings.
She is reviewer of national and international journals.
She is member of the Scientific Committee of MicroRad.
