Short profile: 

I'm a Post-Doc researcher at LOA in Trento. I'm working on Computer Vision and Ontologies, trying to figure out how they can be cleverly merged.


My research area is Computer Vision. Since I joined the VISCOSO Project, I'm particularly interested in merging Ontologies and Computer Vision. My current works are related to people detection and tracking, head pose estimation, group detection and pattern recognition.
