About
I have a PhD in Design (Politecnico di Milano) and I work at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genoa as designer. In collaboration with the SoftHand Pro design team, I work on aspects related to prostheses finishing and social acceptance issues. I'm also a tester for the SoftHand Pro development (www.softhandpro.net). Other research interests are in Strategic and Service Design, dealing with issues related to Design and Disability, Human Centered Design (HCD), Universal Design, accessibility and usability of environments, products and services.
