About
As postdoctoral researcher at Rehab Technologies - INAIL-IIT joint lab, I investigate the cognitive-behavioural and physiological processes underlying human-machine interactions according to the methodologies of neuroergonomics. I aim at designing user-centered prosthetic, assistive, and rehabilitative technologies based on biomedical robotic systems and virtual/mixed reality. I dedicate special attention to the approaches of serious games and gamification for engaging the users and improving the human-machine interaction training. Furthermore, I'm interested in teaching inclusive and health-oriented game design to make students aware of the difficulties of people with disabilities and of of the motor exercise effects on well-being while they learn how to create interactive systems. My studies on augmented interaction (brain-controlled augmented reality feedback design for mobile control and for user training in surgical human-robot interaction) allowed me to obtain, on April 2015, a PhD in Robotics, Cognition and Interaction Technologies from IIT and University of Genova (Italy). My previous studies focused on cognitive-behavioural disciplines: I received a BSc in Cognitive Psychobiology (animal cognition) and an MSc in Experimental Psychology (psychometrics of user experience) at University of Padova (Italy), working meanwhile as consultant and teacher in cognitive ergonomics.
