Elisabetta Farella was born in Bologna. Degree: In February 2001 she received the degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Bologna. The title of her thesis is "Speech enhancement in noisy enviroment on wearable system". She won a prize for Laurea thesis given by C.N.A. (National Confederation for arts and crafts and little and medium enterprises). Post-degree: From March 2002 Ph.D. Student in Computer Science at Department of Engineering at University of Ferrara, under supervision of Prof. Alessandro Bogliolo. The title of her doctoral dissertation is "Natural User Interfaces for Ambient Intelligence Applications" She's also research assistant in the microelectronics laboratory at the DEIS Università di Bologna, under the supervision of Prof. Luca Benini and Prof. Bruno Riccò. She is part of the Ami group at Micrel lab, where she is involved in research about wireless sensor networks as enabling technology for Ambient Intelligence applications. The AmI group is working on WSN at different levels: from hardware/software design to communication protocols implementation. Her particular interest is in application of WSN to ambient intelligence scenarios such as implementation of Body Area Network for different purposes, for example human body tracking, biofeedback, gesture interfaces, biometrics. Her research interests include also VR systems, Cultural Heritage, Wireless Sensor Networks, Pervasive Computing and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). She is winner of the first prize for the Design-In Award 2005 organized by ASSIPE (Italian Association for Electronics Design) with the project: "Bio-feedback Wireless Weareable System". She works in active collaboration with CINECA Vis.I.T Lab and High-Performance System Area ( for research and development of applications in Computer Graphics and Immersive Virtual Reality for handheld devices connected in wireless networks. She also is scientific tutor at T3lab, supervising projects on wireless sensor networks and ambient assisted living. See for further information the work implemented in demonstrator Casattenta.
