Researcher at SUPSI DTI, computer engineer, received a Ph.D. in computer science in 2015. Qualified in mobile sensing and computing, smart localization and human mobility prediction. She has collaborated on various projects for participatory sensing, including VibN for the social geotagging of audio tracks [VIBN11]. Michela has been a lecturer and head of the course “Developing Applications for Androids” at SUPSI since 2012. Her research is particularly focused on “smart” usage and optimization of mobile resources, in order to reduce energy usage as well as the amount of private data (position, audio, activities, etc.) transmitted over the web.
