I am Associate Professor in Computer Science at DIBRIS, Università degli Studi di Genova, where I teach Introduction to Programming to first degree students in Computer Science and Computer Vision to master students in Robotics Engineering and in Computer Science.

My research interests are in the fields of computer vision and machine learning, in particular: data-driven methods for automatic visual perception, including object detection, scene understanding, action recognition; motion analysis, behaviour analysis, and pose estimation in video sequences. I am also interested in applying artificial intelligence methods to different application domains, including robotics, assisted living, and video-surveillance.
