Andrea Vaccari

I received my M.S. in physics from the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy in 1996 and my Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, in 2014.

In 1998, I started working at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory where I was responsible for the design, development and production of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) Front End embedded monitor and control system until 2012. I joined the Virginia Image and Video Analysis (VIVA) laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia in 2010. After receiving my Ph.D., I continued to work there as research scientist and instructor for undergraduate and graduate courses. In January 2018 I moved to Vermont and joined the Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Vermont as lecturer and, in July 2018, I became assistant professor of Computer Science at Middlebury College.

My main research interests include image and signal processing with emphasis on remote sensing and biomedical/biological images, model-based data mining for large spatiotemporal datasets, and graph signal processing as well as novel approaches in experiential and project based undergraduate education.
