Gualtiero Volpe received his degree in computer engineering from the University of Genova in 1999 with a thesis on agent software architectures for multimedia applications. He obtained his PhD degree in June 2003 with a dissertation on computational models of expressive gesture in multimedia systems. In particular, research focused on models and algorithms for expressive content analysis and processing in human-full body movement. 
His research interests include multimodal interactive systems, intelligent and expressive human-machine interaction, modeling and real-time analysis and synthesis of expressive content in music and dance, KANSEI information processing, and expressive gesture communication. 
He is researcher at the DIST – InfoMus Lab at University of Genova
