He obtained his “Laurea” degree (equivalent to M.Sc.) in Electronic Engineering in October 2007 discussing a thesis on innovative human-machine interaction. In particular, two interactive experiences were designed and implemented for the technological museum “Parque Explora” under the guidance of Dr. Franco Oberti. From October 2007 to April 2008 he worked in the final setup of the interactive experiences for the museum. From October 2008 he worked as a collaborator at ISIP40 lab (University of Genova). He received his Ph.D. on “Electronic and Computer Engineering, Robotics and Telecommunications” in April 2012 at the University of Genova – Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (DIBE) under the supervision of Prof. Carlo Regazzoni with a thesis entitled “Bayesian Probabilistic Algorithms for Video Analytics: Camera Motion Estimation and Extended Visual Object Tracking”. He is co/author of 1 journal and 6 conference papers. He has served as reviewer for the IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal based Surveillance (AVSS), IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), Eurasip Journal of Image ssecurity, IET Electronics Letters. He has been in the staff for the IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal based Surveillance, AVSS 2009 held in Genova(Italy) on September 2 – 4, 2009. He is a member of the IEEE.
