Short bio

Ornella Mich received a degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Padova, Italy and a PhD in Computer Science from the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. She worked in the design group for radar electronics for jet fighter development in FIAR, Milan, Italy. She also taught Electronics and Electrotecnics in a high school of Bolzano. Since October 1989 Mich has been working at FBK (formerly ITC-Irst), an institute for scientific and technological research in Trento, Italy. For one year, she worked in the VLSI group, studying new CMOS vision sensors. Then she worked in the Computer Vision group. Since June 2010 she has been working in the i3 - intelligent interfaces & interaction - research unit. Mich's personal research interests focus on the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) with much of her research focusing on design and evaluation methodologies related to intelligent interfaces and accessibility-related issues.
