Rodolfo Zunino was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1961, and 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 the same university. Since 2000 he works at the Faculty of Engineering of the same university as an Associate Professor, 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 Ph.D. students in electronics and computer science. His main scientific interests involve (1) embedded electronics for intelligent systems (adaptive solutions for nonlinear signal processing, sensing, and prediction); (2) neural models for semisupervised learning; and (3) intelligent methods for security (network and computer security and text mining). 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. His research interests involve magnetic sensing for critical infrastructure protection (port security), text-mining tools for document clustering and interpretation, and advanced electronics for robotics. Zunino coauthored more than 220 scientific papers (75+ international journals, 145+ conference papers); he holds two patents. From 2001 to 2009 he served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks. He is in the Editorial Board of journals in the areas of interest, namely, ISRN-Signal Processing and Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience. He has participated in the Scientific Committees of several International Events (IJCNN, ICANN, IDEAL, HAIS, FOSINT-SI, and Applied Computing). Rodolfo Zunino is a Senior Member of the IEEE (Computational Intelligence Society (CIS)).
