About Me

I am an assistant professor (RTD-A) at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Milan. My research focuses on assistive technologies designed to augment the cognitive capabilities of users and overcome barriers that limit their access to information and physical world. I investigate embodied sensing, knowledge retrieval, intelligent user interfaces and human computer interaction, mediated by mobile and pervasive devices.

I conducted my doctoral studies at EveryWare Lab of the University of Milan and I received my Ph.D. in March 2015. I have previously worked as a postdoctoral fellow and project scientist at the Cognitive Assistance Lab of Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA and as a postdoctoral researcher at the “S. Polin” Laboratory for Research and Experimentation with Novel Assistive Technologies for STEM at the University of Turin, Italy.
