Biography

Francesca Gasparini took her degree in Nuclear Engineering at the Polytechnic of Milan in 1997 and her Ph.D in Science and Technology in Nuclear Power Plants at the Polytechnic of Milan in 2000. Since January 2001 she has been a fellow at the ITC Imaging and Vision Laboratory, of the Italian National Research Council, located in Milan, where her research has focused on image enhancement, cast detection and cast removal. She is currently a teaching assistant in computer science at DISCo (Dipartimento di Informatica, Sistemistica e Comunicazione) of the University of Milano-Bicocca. Her main research topics are related to image and signal processing and multimedia applications. She is particularly interested in processing and analysis of neurophysiological data (EEG, heart rate, blood pressure, …), as well as psychophysical ones, using machine learning techniques, genetic programming and optimization algorithms. She is a member of NeuroMi, Milan Center for Neuroscience
