Rodolfo Zunino (born in Genoa, Italy, 1961) obtained the “Laurea” degree cum laude in Electronic Engineering from Genoa University in 1985. From 1986 to 1995 he was a research consultant with the Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (DIBE) of Genoa University, which he joined in 1995. Since 2000 he is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering of Genoa University, where he teaches Electronics for Embedded Systems and Electronics for Security. He is the founder of the Smart Embedded Applications Lab (SEALab) at DIBE, where he supervised several PhD students in electronics and computer science. His main scientific interests involve: 1) embedded electronics (FPGA, DSP) for the support of intelligent systems, especially in the area of adaptive solutions for non-linear signal processing, sensing and prediction; 2) neural algorithms and models for semi-supervised learning; 3) intelligent methods for security. From a methodological perspective, he has been researching for about twenty years in the field of neural networks, and has developed novel, efficient models for data representation in both supervised and unsupervised learning. From an application viewpoint, his research interest involve magnetic sensing for port protection, text-mining tools for document clustering and interpretation, and advanced techniques for intelligent TV. Rodolfo Zunino coauthored more than 190 scientific papers (60+ Journals, 130+ Conf. papers); he holds one patent in efficient methods for network security. From 2001 to 2009 he served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, has participated in the Scientific Committees of several Events (IJCNN, ICANN, IWPAAMS, Applied Computing 2006). Rodolfo Zunino is a Senior Member of IEEE.
