From 2006 to 2010
Researcher and Consultant at Media Integration and Communication Center, a National Center of Excellence at the University of Florence, regarding fields of tangible and natural interaction, computer vision systems applied to large interactive surfaces. Further, at MICC he has been involved in management concerning natural interaction’s technology transfer projects in collaboration with local government and private companies.
Member of Visual Information and Media Lab headed by Prof. Alberto Del Bimbo and member of TANGerINE research project (TANGible Interactive Natural Environment) in collaboration with Micrel Lab DEIS, University of Bologna.
He graduated in Computer Science at University of Florence and since 2006 is an invited professor in Sound Design at Master in Multimedia Content Design, University of Florence. He has been also:
- Invited professor for the module “Multimedia Design”, Faculty of Architecture, University of Florence
- Lecturer for the module “Multimedia project production”, Faculty of Engineering, University of Florence
He has been a reviewer for many international conference and journal like JVLC (Journal of Visual Languages and Computing) and also:
