@ Fondazione Bruno Kessler


My research enthusiasm is on vision-based scene understanding that facilitates robotic automation for social good, covering diverse topics on static scene modelling, semantic scene understanding and scene dynamic analysis.

I obtained the PhD in Electronic Engineering in 2018 from Queen Mary University of London (UK) under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Cavallaro, working on vision-based multi-agent navigation. Since 2018, I worked as a post-doc researcher in the Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision/Visual Geometry Modelling (PAVIS/VGM) research line led by Dr. Alessio Del Bue at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), working on topics related to active 3D vision through both research and industrial Projects. Currently I work as a researcher in the Deep Visual Learning (DVL) unit led by Prof. Elisa Ricci in Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), working on privacy-preserving scene dynamics analysis in the context of Smart City under a couple of EU Projects.
