received the MSc degree in telecommunication engineering from the
University of Siena, Italy in 2003. Since 2004 I am a research student
and assistant tutor at the Electronic Engineering department of the Queen
Mary University of London, United Kingdom. In 2003 I visited the Signal
Processing Institute at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL),
Lausanne, Switzerland, working as a guest research student in the area of
video coding and signal representation with redundant dictionaries. My
research interests are object tracking, classification, Bayesian
filtering, sparse image and video coding. I completed my PhD research on
"Monte Carlo methods for visual target tracking" in June 2008
under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Cavallaro.
Up-to-date information on my research
interests and publications can be found here.
