Associate Professor in Electrical and Electronic Measurements



Biography

Alessandro Depari received the M.Sc. Degree in Electronics Engineering and the Ph.D. Degree in Electronic Instrumentation from the University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. Since 2007, he has been Assistant Professor and, since 2017, Associate Professor with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia, in the field of electrical and electronic measurements.

From 2004 to 2009, he was appointed as assistant of the Fundamentals of Digital Electronics course for the B.Sc. Degree in Information Engineering. Since the academic year 2010/11, he has been appointed as teacher of the Logic Networks and Principles of Digital Electronics module and, since the academic year 2015/16, of the Complements of Digital Electronics and Microprocessors module, within the Digital Electronics integrated course, for the B.Sc. Degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering.

Since 2003, he was supervisor of more that 30 thesis works and tutor of one Ph.D. candidate. Since 2011, he has been member of the Committee of the Ph.D. Programs in Electronic Engineering, Sensors and Instrumentation and in Information Engineering, at the University of Brescia.

His research activity includes: sensor signal conditioning and processing, in particular concerning chemical sensors for artificial olfactory systems; embedded systems based on microcontrollers, DSPs and FPGAs; the development of smart sensors and sensor networks for distributed measurement with industrial communication systems; design of methods and digital electronic circuits for numeric measurement instrumentation; design and development of systems for m-Health (mobile health) and IoT (Internet of Things) applications. He is member of the research group Embedded Systems and Smart Sensors (ES3) at the University of Brescia. In July 2011, he has been Visiting Fellow in the School of Engineering Systems, Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. He is author or co-author of more than 100 scientific works, published on international journals, books and conference proceedings. He is co-inventor of two italian and two international patents.

Since 2003, he has been member of the Italian Associations SIE (Italian Society of Electronics - formerly Group of Electronics, GE) and GMEE (Group of Electrical and Electronic Measurements). Since 2007, he has been member of IEEE and, since 2012, of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society. In 2015, he has been elected as Secretary of the IEEE Italy Chapter IM - Instrumentation and Measurement. In 2016, he has been elected as Counselor of the IEEE Student Branch of Brescia.

Since 2012, he has been member of the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference (I2MTC). Since 2013, he has been member of the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE Sensors Applications Symposium (SAS). Since 2016, he has been member and, since 2019, Chair Elect of the Steering Committee of the IEEE Sensors Applications Symposium (SAS). He was Special Session Chair of the IEEE Sensors Applications Symposium (SAS), Seoul, Republic of Korea, March 12-14, 2018. He was Technical Program Co-Chair of the IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Industry 4.0 and IoT, Brescia, Italy, April 16-18, 2018. He was Technical Program Co-Chair of the IEEE Sensors Applications Symposium (SAS), Sophia Antipolis, France, March 11-13, 2019. He is Technical Program Co-Chair of the IEEE Sensors Applications Symposium (SAS), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, March 9-11, 2020.
