About me

I am enrolled as a Ph.D. student at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Padova since November 2014. The same year, I received my Master's Degree in Computer Engineering, also from the University of Padova. During this time I had the chance to grow and deepen many of my interests about computer science and technology, going from algorithm design paradigms and computational complexity theory to software engineering. I am now conducting my research at the Multimedia Technology and Telecommunications Lab (LTTM), dealing with fundamental problems both from the Computer Vision as well as Machine Learning fields.


Research interests

My research interests are:

  • Semantic scene labeling using RGB-D data

  • Deep learning

  • Hand pose and gesture recognition from depth data
