About

I am a Post Doc at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and University of Verona (UNIVR), Italy. My research interests include Telepresence, Telerobotics, Dynamic 3D reconstruction, Augmented/Virtual/Mixed/ Reality (AR/VR/MR), gaze-contingent rendering, and point cloud compression.

Key Responsibility:

  • Perception & Localization: Designing real-time dynamic dense 3D reconstruction and scene understanding system via RGB-D camera to create maps and locations in the world.
  • Visualization: Designing Immersive Telerobotics/ Telepresence visualization interfaces using 3D reconstructed scenes with modern virtual/Augmented reality (VR/AR) interfaces.
  • Compression: Design and integration of Point cloud compression (PCC) techniques: G-PCC, and V-PCC.
