Giulia Sammartano is an architect, PhD in Geomatics (SSD ICAR/06). She is researcher and assistant professor with time-contract (Rtd-B) at Department of Architecture and Desing. She cooperates with LabG4CH - Geomatics for Cultural Heritage and she is member of FULL - Future Urban Legacy Lab Interdepartmental Center at the POLITO. The research interests are devoted to generation and analysis of geospatial data for multi-sensor and user-oriented documentation purposes, at building and urban scales. Recent activities are related to experimentation of mobile portable sensors for 3D digitization in rapid mapping applications (seismic emergency, archaeology areas) and to the investigation of building and urban digital twin models design, in the features related to geometric and sematic components. The FULL affiliation consolidated a multi-scalar methodological approach applied to urban heritage and urban transformation analyses by means of geospatial data. She is part of DIRECT Team Polito for emergency surveying, and 2016 Polito Task Force post-earthquake mission. She participated at the Italian Archaeological Mission in Hierapolis of Phrygia in Turkey (MAIER) in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2023 and in other archaeological missions in Bahrain Kingdom (2021) and Iraq (2022, 2023) She took part in the PRIN2015 (GamHer), PRIN2017-linea giovani (B4R), PRIN-PNRR2022 (REVHEAL). She is author of more than 50 scientific papers in peer review scientific journals, national and international proceedings and books chapters.
