Welcome to my personal webpage!

pic_profileI am a Senior Scientist and a Founding Team Member at perceptiveIO, Inc. I am developing computer vision and machine learning algorithms for 3D sensing, visual recognition and human-computer interaction. My research interests are: computer vision, machine learning, 3D reconstructions, vision for robotics and deep learning.

Previously I was a Post-Doc Researcher in the Interactive 3D Technologies (I3D) group at Microsoft Research Redmond where I substantially contributed to the Hololens 3D sensing capabilities. I was also one of the leading members of the Holoportation project.

I obtained my PhD in Robotics, Cognition and Interaction Technologies at the Italian Institute of Technology in collaboration with the University of Genoa in 2013. During my PhD I developed computer vision and machine learning techniques for the iCub humanoid robot.

In 2010 I completed my Master’s Degree in Computer Engineering at Sapienza University of Rome, with a specialization in Artificial Intelligence and Pattern Recognition.
