Short bio

I received the MSc in Mathematics ('00) and a Ph.D in Computer Science ('05) from the University of Trento, and the Habilitation to Full Professor (in Italy, ASN16 09/H1).

I am a Researcher at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy since 2005, tenured since 2008. My research has been mainly in the field of people tracking, audio-visual tracking, pose estimation and group detection with application to monitoring and behavior analysis. From 2012 to end of 2015 I have been Head of Computer Vision Research Unit Technologies of Vision at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler. In 2016 I have been launching an innovation project in a home automation SME. 

My main research interests are currently in deep learning with structured output prediction applied to video classification and tracking. I hold a number of international patents on video tracking.
