Short bio

I am Research Scientist at Fondazione Bruno Kessler - FBK and former head of the computer vision research Unit TeV of FBK.

My research belongs to the area of computer vision and machine learning and is centered on methods and systems for video understanding and 3d scene analysis. I have worked extensively on object tracking, audio-visual trackinghead pose estimation and group detection for behavior analysis. My current focus is on representation learning for action recognition and video question answering.
