Alessandra Fascioli was born in Parma, Italy. In 1996 she received the Dr.Ing. (Master) degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Parma discussing a Master Thesis on Stereo Vision based Obstacles Localization in Automotive Environments.
From November 1996 to October 1999 she was a PhD student in Information Technology at the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione of the University of Parma where she chaired the local IEEE student branch.
Since 2000 she is a temporary researcher at the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione.

Her research interests focus on real-time computer vision and computer architectures for automotive applications. She was one of the investigators of the ARGO Project, aimed at developing computer vision systems for the automatic driving of road vehicles. She is also involved in other projects related to the use of daytime and infrared vision for human shape localization and pedestrian detection, as well as obstacle, lane, and vehicle detection. She is part of the TerraMax Team for the DARPA Grand Challenge, an off-road race for fully autonomous vehicles.
She's also interested in image processing techniques based on the Mathematical Morphology computational model.

She was involved in the organization of the following international events:
