Hi, and welcome to my home page. Here you can find my research interests and a summary of my experiences.
- we are organizing the 3rd SPME Workshop in conjunction with ICRA 2013. The event will take place in Karlsruhe on Sunday, May 5 and attendance is free (no registration needed). For more info please visit spme.ws.
- If you are at ICRA, you might also be interested to the PCL Tutorial that we are organizing for Friday, May 10.
My research interests are focused on computer vision, machine learning and robotic perception. I also have a strong curiosity towards biologically-inspired models for visual perception. My fields of expertise are related to the following areas:
- Invariant feature detection and description for 2D, 3D and RGB-D data
- 2D/3D/RGB-D object recognition and categorization
- stereo vision and 3D reconstruction
- video analysis for surveillance and behavior analysis
- pattern matching and robust visual correspondence
The applications of my research activity have always been mainly in robotics and video-surveillance. An up-to-date, detailed list of research topics can be found here.
I received my B.Eng. and M.Eng. from University of Bologna, Italy, respectively in 2003 and 2005. In 2006 I joined DEIS (Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informatica e Sistemistica), University of Bologna as a Ph.D. student, and ARCES (Advanced Research Center on Electronic Systems), University of Bologna, Italy, as a collaborator. In April 2009 I received my Ph.D from University of Bologna, with a dissertation on “methodologies for visual correspondence”.
Currently I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Computer Vision Lab, University of Bologna. I am a member of IEEE and IAPR-GIRPR. I am also a Senior Scientist volunteer for the Open Perception foundation and a developer for the Point Cloud Library (PCL). In summer 2008 I had a great internship period at Willow Garage, California (USA) focusing on stereo algorithms for robots and accurate 3D reconstruction techniques based on stereo. During fall 2004 I spent one semester at UTS, Sydney (Australia) as an exchange student.
