David Atienza Alonso is associate professor of electrical engineering and director of the Embedded Systems Laboratory (ESL) at EPFL. He received his PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from UCM, Spain, and IMEC, Belgium. His research interests focus on system-level design methodologies for high-performance multi-processor systems-onchip (MPSoC) and low-power embedded systems, including new thermal-aware design for 2D and 3D MPSoCs, design methods and architectures for wireless body sensor networks, dynamic memory management and interconnection hierarchy optimisations. He is a Senior Member of the ACM and an IEEE Fellow. Within NCCR Robotics he works on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) with respect to wearable robots and is head of the Knowledge and Technology Transfer (Industry) Committee.
