Alessio Brutti

Researcher
Short bio

Alessio Brutti is a tenured researcher at FBK. After graduating in Telecommunication engineering at the University of Padova in 2001, in 2003 he joined FBK-irst being part of the SHINE research unit. In 2007 he completed his PhD in Computer Science at University of Trento. His activities focus mainly on digital audio processing based on distributed microphone arrays for: localization and tracking, speaker verification and recognition, acoustic scene analysis and speech enhancement. He is also active on multi-modal signal processing for audio-video person tracking and for person identification. More details here.
