I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick and an Associate Fellow of the HEA. My research interests include high dynamic range imaging, image processing, cognitive psychology, and virtual reality.
I completed my PhD in Engineering in July 2020 from the University of Warwick with a dissertation on the application of High Dynamic Range imaging techniques for face matching tasks. The adoption of this imaging technology can be beneficial in scenarios where accuracy in lighting and colour reproduction is paramount, such as surveillance and forensics.
In 2013 I graduated from the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy) with a Masters Degree in Computer Engineering with a dissertation on autonomous agents' behaviour for game environments. I worked as a business intelligence application consultant and, from 2014 to 2016, I was a MarieCurie Fellow in the Initial Training Networks for Digital Cultural Heritage. A project aimed at the design and development of a framework for cost-effective preservation, documentation, protection and presentation of cultural heritage. Within this project, I worked on the process of digitisation, virtual reconstruction and delivery of cultural heritage sites and artefacts. In March 2020 I joined the Department of Computer Science as a Teaching Fellow and currently I'm the module organiser for CS257 Advanced Computer Architectures and CS9D2 Software Reliability and Testing.
