Leda Lunardi has been a professor since 2003 in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. She received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. After graduation she worked for AT&T Bell Labs starting in Murray Hill, NJ and then AT&T Labs Research after the trivesture. She was with JDS Uniphase as a group leader and senior scientist before joining academia.

From 2005 to 2007 she served as program director for the electrical, communications and cyber systems (ECCS) division in the engineering directorate of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, VA. Under her direction, she started the hybrid communication systems program sponsoring research in free space optics, terahertz components, RF and microwave devices and subsystems.

Her research is on traditional electronic and photonics devices and their applications on energy scavenging, or high speed integration. She has been devoted to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities in engineering and science careers. Presently she is the principal investigator of the NSF sponsored undergraduate REU-Site: Engineering the Grid, related to energy research.

For over two decades she has been a technical volunteer serving as member or chair on several IEEE executive and technical committee conferences, as well as national and international governments’ ad-hoc committees for grants and projects reviews. Some of her present professional activities include member of the editorial board for IEEE Proceedings, editor for the IEEE Transactions of Electron Devices (Optoelectronics Devices), and treasurer for the IEEE Photonics Society Eastern Carolina Chapter.

At NC State, she was director of graduate programs of the ECE Department in 2007, one of the largest programs in the Southeast. From 2008-2011, she was in the leadership team of the NSF-ERC Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM) Systems Center, as the education program director. She has served and chaired on several department, college and university committees. As Faculty Senate member, she is committed to represent her fellow faculty members.
