Hi, I work as Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Trento (Italy). I received the Ph.D from the international ICT School at the University of Trento in 2007. In 2008 and 2009 I was research assistant at the Queen Mary, University of London. In 2007 I was visiting student at the Image Processing Lab at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB), USA.
After some years spent in the image/video coding world, my current research interests moved towards video analysis for monitoring and surveillance applications, human behavior understanding, as well as man machine interfaces exploring gesture recognition and gaze tracking.
