Michela Spagnuolo is Senior Researcher at CNR-IMATI-GE since 11/07/2001.
She authored more than 130 reviewed papers in scientific journals and international conferences, is associate editor of three international journals (JCR) in Computer Graphics (Computer Graphics Forum, The Visual Computer and Computers&Graphics).
She actively works as chair of conferences and workshops (in 2013, she is conference chair of the EG Symposium on Geometry Processing), and she is member of the steering committee of Shape Modeling International and of the EG Workshops on 3D Object Retrieval.
Since 2005, she is responsible of the research unit of the CNR-IMATI identified as ICT.P10.009 Advanced techniques for the analysis and synthesis of 3D shapes, within the Multimodal and Multidimensional content and Media; since 2007, she is also responsible of the research unit identified as INT.P02.008 / Modelling and analysis, tools of high-performance computing and grid computing for data and applications in bioinformatics, Interdept. Project on Bioinformatics (now within the CNR Flagship Project Interomics).
Her research interest include geometric and semantic modelling of 3D objects, approaches based on computational topology for the analysis of shapes, method for the evaluation of similarity at the structural and semantic level. On these research topics, she has co-supervised 6 PhD thesis (plus two ongoing) and 6 Laurea degree thesis.
She has been working as scientific responsible for many international and national projects, and she is currently responsible for CNR-IMATI of the FP7 Integrate Project IQmulus: A High-volume Fusion and Analysis Platform for Geospatial Point Clouds, Coverages and Volumetric Data Sets (Nov. 2012-Oct. 2016)
