PhD student
Short bio

Alessio is a PhD Candidate at Queen Mary University of London.  He works on an Audio-Visual Intelligent Sensing Project with a joint studentship (2015-2019) of FBK and QMUL under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Cavallaro (QMUL) and Oswald Lanz (FBK).

Alessio obtained both the Bachelor degree in Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering (2008-2012) and the Master degree (2-years) in Telecommunications Engineering (2012-2015) at University of Trento, Italy. He took his master thesis project (March-August 2014) on Multiple Object Tracking with the PERCEPTION team at INRIA Grenoble Rhone-Alpes, under the supervision of Prof. Radu Horaud (INRIA) and Nicola Conci (MMLAB, UNITN), and co-advised by Xavier-Alameda Pineda and Sileye Ba. After the Master, he collaborated with the MMLAB (UNITN) for 5 months before starting the PhD programme.
