Research Activities

Team leader of the PRA Lab's Biometric Unit.

The research activity of Dr. Gian Luca Marcialis is focused on the theme “Biometrics for information security”. In particular, his research interests are related to fingerprint classification and verification and to face recognition and verification, with emphasis on multi-modal matchers fusion and semi-supervised recognition.

During his research activity, Dr. Marcialis has co-authored papers in collaboration with leading figures of the statistical pattern recognition community. For further information, see the publication section.

He is also “team  “team leader” in several international and national projects (MAVENFP7 Tabula Rasa, “Biometric guards” funded by Italian Ministry of Research and Education, “Adaptive biometric systems” funded by Regione Autonoma della Sardegna) and co-founder and organizer of the “International Fingerprint Liveness Detection Competition” (see in particular the last one, LivDet2015).

He has co-worked with the Scientific Investigation Office of Arma dei Carabinieri on the topic “algorithms for the analysis of fingerprint images and liveness detection”.
