Short Bio

I have received the PhD in Information and Communication Technologies from the University of Trento in 2015. After 2 years as Marie Curie Fellow at TU Wien (Austria) in Computer Vision Lab (CVL), I joined the Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision (PAVIS) group of Prof. Vittorio Murino at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Genova. On August 2018 I moved back to my home region working for the Caritro Deep Learning Lab of the ProM facility of Rovereto. In July 2019 I joined MHUG group of prof. Nicu Sebe as an Assistant Professor (RTD-A). I am still collaborating with the ProM Facility of Rovereto where I am responsible for the activity of the Caritro Deep Learning lab.
My research interests are in the field of Computer Vision and Machine Learning, in particular on topics such as scene understanding and multimodal learning. I am acting as reviewer for various prestigious conferences in the field (e.g.: CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, etc.).
