Research Interests

My past research interests included fundamental/physical aspects of computing (optical computing, quantum computing), optical telecommunications, and artificial vision systems. My current interests lie in the area of human-computer interfaces for enhancing human communication and expression. I also enjoy applying the results of this research in my more personal works as a Media Artist.

Curriculum Vitæ

Alvaro Cassinelli was born in Montevideo ( Uruguay ) in 1972. In 1990 he obtained both French and Uruguayan Bachelor degree, and a grant to pursue his studies in France . In 1996 he obtained a Graduate Engineering diploma from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications (ENST, now Telecom ParisTech), in Paris. He completed the same year a Doctoral Qualifying Degree (DEA) in physics (laser and matter interaction) from the University of Paris-XI/ENST/Ecole Polytechnique. In 2000 he received a Ph.D degree from the University of Paris-XI Orsay for his work on optoelectronic stochastic parallel processors for image processing. Since 2001 he has been working as Research Fellow, Research Assistant and since 2006 as Assistant Professor and leader of the Meta-Perception Group at the Ishikawa-Komuro Laboratory, and co-founder of the Devices that Alter Perception workshop. He has been awarded several prizes as a Media Artist, including among others a Grand Prize [Art Division] at the 9th Japan Media Art Festival (2006), an Excellence Prize [Entertainment Division] at the 13th Japan Media Art Festival (2009), an Honorary Mention at Ars Electronica (2006), and the Jury Grand Prize at Laval Virtual (2011).
