Valerie Galluzzi

Assistant Professor

Dr. Valerie Galluzzi’s areas of expertise include activity recognition, machine learning, and sensor networks. During her time as a research assistant with the Compepi Group, she helped develop a wrist-worn sensor method of detecting hand hygiene duration and technique among hospital workers. She has brought those interests to campus, developing independent study courses for students to study Internet of Things-themed projects. In her first year on the Rose-Hulman faculty, Dr. Galluzzi was integral in helping students launch the Women of Like Fields Passionate about Computing (WOLF PAC) student organization, which she now advises. In her spare time, the Hawaiian native likes to read, write, and travel.
