Cristiana Larizza got a degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Pavia in 1983 and a PhD in Bioengineering in 1990. In 1990 she was nominated Data Processing Technician and since 1992 she is Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Pavia. The research areas from the beginning of her activities were: compartmental models applied to biomedical problems; design and implementation of an intelligent workstation for the physician; temporal abstractions mechanisms applied to clinical data; study and monitoring of complex dynamic systems with graphical models. Her research interests in the last ten years are related both to methodological topics, such as the application of AI techniques and statistics to the analysis of biomedical data, and to the study of advanced architectures for the distance management of chronic patients. In particular, her main activities are on: - application of temporal abstraction techniques to the analysis of biomedical longitudinal data; - information technologies applications, such as the design and development of multi-access telemedicine services for the management of chronics patients; - intelligent data analysis in medicine; - systems and methods for quality assessment of care processes. New research topics she’s also currently working on are: - application of algorithms based on "record linkage" and - biomedical text mining. She has been in the scientific committee of international conferences and workshops and she is reviewer for many international conferences and journals. She is author of about 80 papers on international journals and proceedings.
