Fabio Roli received his M.S. degree, with honours, and Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Genoa, Italy. He was a member of the research group on Image Processing and Understanding of the University of Genoa, Italy, from 1988 to 1994. He was adjunct professor at the University of Trento, Italy, in 1993 and 1994. In 1995, he joined the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Cagliari, Italy, where he is now professor of computer engineering and Director of the PRA Lab. Dr Roli’s research activity is focused on the design of pattern recognition systems and their applications to biometric personal identification, multimedia text categorization, and computer security. On these topics, he has published more than two hundred papers at conferences and on journals. He was a very active organizer of international conferences and workshops, and established the popular workshop series on multiple classifier systems (www.diee.unica.it/mcs). He is a member of the governing boards of the International Association for Pattern Recognition and of the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society. He is Fellow of the IEEE, and Fellow of the International Association for Pattern Recognition. Further details are available on Dr Roli Google profile (Roli Google profile).
Professor Roli's current research activity is focused on multiple classifier systems and their applications to biometric personal identification, text categorization, and intrusion detection in computer networks. On such topics, he has published more than 250 papers at conferences and in journals and has given lectures and tutorials.
