was born on July 27, 1983, in Asolo, Italy (45.801 N, 11.915 E).
He is a Research Scientist, Director of Artificial Intelligence at the Scripps Translational Science Institute, in La Jolla CA,
and a Visiting Scholar at the University California San Diego.
Dr. Giorgio Quer received a B.Sc. (2005),
an M.Sc. (2007) with honors in Telecommunications Engineering, and a Ph.D. (2011) in Information Engineering from the
University of Padova, Italy. In 2007, he was a visiting researcher at the Centre for Wireless Communication at the
University of Oulu, Finland, where he performed research on forwarding and routing techniques for WSNs. During his
doctoral studies, Giorgio's research has been focused on wireless networks optimization and WSNs, in collaboration with
DOCOMO Euro-Labs, Munich, Germany, and UCSD Calit2. From 2011 to 2016, he has been a postdoctoral researcher at UCSD,
focusing on cognitive networking. Since 2017, he joined the Faculty at the Scripps Translational Science Institute.
He currently serves as a reviewer for several IEEE and ACM journals.
He was the co-chair for the Communication QoS, Reliability and Modeling symposium at IEEE Globecom 2015.
His research interests are focused on the interpretation and representation of big data for human health, in order to
build models for prediction of future occurrences, and improve patient outcomes. His multi-disciplinary interests
include theoretical models, such as compressive sensing, Bayesian analysis, wavelet coherence and Markov decision
processes; and analysis of noisy time-series from wearables, in particular physiological signals such as blood pressure,
heart rate variability, and photoplethysmography.
