I've received my PhD in Computer Science in 2020 within the Vision, Image Processing & Sound (VIPS) Lab at the University of Verona, Italy, under the supervision of prof. Marco Cristani.
During my studies, I've been working on Machine Learning (Deep Learning) focusing on the exploitation of visualization techniques to understand the internal representation of neural networks, with particular attention to CNNs for image classification and regression. My research aims to identify and use relevant information from 2D images and 3D volumes, with active recognition systems in mind.
From July 2018 to March 2019, I collaborated with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova, Italy, prof. Alessio Del Bue. I also spent three years (2012-2015) as research assistant in the ALTAIR Robotics Lab (Verona), where I was involved in the SAFROS and I-SUR European Projects (FP7-ICT), working on the development of a surgical simulator and a tracking system of anatomical structures.
My background also includes computer vision and graphics applied to surgical robotics, augmented reality and game development.
Currently, I work at Embedded Vision Systems, Srl (Verona, Italy) as R&D Software Engineer.
