Alberto Calatroni received his degree (M.Sc.) in electronic engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2006. He conducted research on loudspeaker and microphone arrays at Politecnico di Milano until 2009. He then received the Ph.D. degree from ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in 2013. His research in the Wearable Computing Laboratory at ETH was focussed on dynamic adaptation and autonomous evolution in context recognition systems. He is now senior researcher at ETH and co-founder of a spin off company producing sensor technologies.
