Short bio

Elisabetta Farella, Ph.D., is the lead researcher of the Energy Efficient Embedded Digital Architectures (E3DA) unit at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler in Trento, Italy. Her research is in the field of energy-independent embedded systems that are, at the same time, equipped with artificial on-board intelligence. Examples of such systems are Wireless Sensor Networks, wearable electronics, Internet of Things from the point of view of devices equipped with smart sensors and actuators. These technologies are used in various application fields from motor rehabilitation to human-machine interaction, especially in smart cities and communities. She worked since 2014 as coordinator of the research activities on-body sensor and actuators networks, smart objects and tangible interfaces at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering (DEI) at the University of Bologna (www.dei.unibo.it) within the group of Prof. Luca Benini. From Spring 2001 to end of 2005 she was research fellow at CINECA Visit Lab (https://www.cineca.it/). From 2006 to 2010 she was research supervisor at T3lab (www.t3lab.it) of 3 groups of researchers working on embedded systems (wireless sensor networks, ambient assisted living, RFID). Elisabetta participates with different roles to several National and International projects (e.g. EU projects), cooperating with industries and academies.
