I'm an engineer and developer with knowledge sharing and problem solving attitudes.
I have 6 years experience in recursive Bayesian filtering and software developing, including R&D collaboration with Selex ES (Finmeccanica) and a Ph.D. in computer science and automation engineering from University of Florence (Italy). I was recipient of the 2014 Australia Award Endeavour Research Fellowship (granted by the Australian Government, Department of Education) under which I have been an R&D collaborator at the Advanced Signal Processing Group of Curtin University of Technology (Perth, Australia).
From January 2016, I'm a post-doc at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Genoa, Italy) in the iCub Facility, Humanoid Sensing and Perception, for studying, researching and developing new augmented reality-based visual tracking software for visual servoing tasks for the humanoid robotic platform iCub.
The Ph.D. thesis "Distributed multi-object tracking over sensor networks: a random finite set approach" has been evaluated to be a significant scientific contribution by the Florence University Press (FUP) judging committee.
Issued by the Department of Industry of the Australian Government. The Endeavour Research Fellowship provides financial support for postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows to undertake short-term research (up to 6 months) towards a Masters or Ph.D. or postdoctoral research in any field of study in Australia.
