Joe Paradiso is the Alexander W. Dreyfoos (1954) Professor in Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab, where he directs the Responsive Environments group. He received his PhD in Physics from MIT in 1981 and a BSEE from Tufts University in 1977, and joined the Media Lab in 1994 after developing spacecraft control and sensor systems at Draper Laboratory and high-energy physics detectors at ETH Zurich. His current research explores how sensor networks augment and mediate human experience, interaction and perception. This encompasses wireless sensing systems, wearable and body sensor networks, energy harvesting and power management for embedded sensors, smart buildings, ubiquitous/pervasive computing and the Internet of Things, human-computer interfaces, and interactive music/media. He has also been designing and building music synthesizers since the early 1970s, and has been teaching and directing research on musical controllers for over two decades. He has written over 300 articles and papers in these areas.
