Alessandra Mileo is a Post-doctoral researcher and Adjunct Lecturer at DERI, NUIG since October 2010. She is part of the Reasoning and Querying Unit and her research topics at DERI are related to knowledge representation and reasoning for policy modeling and evaluation, ambient intelligence, context-aware systems, stream reasoning and sensor discovery. The main application areas currently under investigation are related to Healthcare, Independent Living for the elderly, Indoor Localization and Semantic Presence.
Previously she was appointed as a Research Assistant at the Nomadis Lab, in the Department of Informatics, Systems and Communication of the University of Milano-Bicocca. In the Nomadis Lab she works on the formalization of clinical knowledge, activity recognition, context interpretation, prediction and prevention in healthcare. These activities are being investigated in the scenario of SINDI (Secure and INDependent LIving), a system for intelligent remote monitoring of patients in their home environment, based on the combination of Wireless Sensor Networks and nonmonotonic reasoning techniques.
