:: About Me
I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department, Vision group at Queen Mary University of London. I am working for BEWARE project and my supervisors are Tao Xiang and Shaogang Gong.
I received my Bachelor of Science from Politecnico di Milano (Italy). During my Bachelor I had the opportunity to attend Ecole Centrale Marseille as an exchange student for one semester. In 2006, I received my Master of Science in Telecommunication Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy), where I specialized in signal processing and networks. As part of my master’s degree, I was a guest research student at Queen Mary University of London's Multimedia and Vision group, where I conducted research in audio visual tracking.
Immediately following my master’s degree, I worked as a research engineer in Milan for a year before starting my Ph.D. at Queen Mary, University of London in November of 2007.
My research interests include signal processing, computer vision, Bayesian models, statistics and machine learning. I am currently working on human actions modelling and recognition. My project’s purpose is to detect and recognize human actions from videos captured in unconstrained scenarios such as: CCTV cameras, YouTube clips, mobile phones videos and TV movies.
