Since 2008, I am the head of the i3 Research Unit at FBK
My main research interest is on the study of technologies that facilitate human communication and human-computer interaction. Initially, I was mainly focussed on the field of intelligent interfaces and in particular language-based interfaces. Later, I focused on the applications of IT in the domain of cultural heritage with a particular focus the design issues related to mobile multimedia. Recently, I became interest in the areas of co-located collaborative interfaces and multimodal systems for behavioral analysis.
In 2012, I served as
- Area Chair for ICMI2012, Santa Monica, October 2011
- Area Chair for IUI2012 – International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces. Lisbon, February 2012
- Programme Committee member of LREC2012. Instanbul, May 2012
Currently, I am a member of the faculty for the Doctoral School on Cognitive and Brain Sciences at the University of Trento and I teach Designing of Graphical Interfaces (in Italian) at the undergraduate degree on Interfaces and Technology Communication at the Faculty of Cognitive Science.
