Biografia: 

I received my Diploma degree in 2006 from the School of Rural and Surveying Engineering in NTUA, working on my thesis in the Laboratory of Photogrammetry. I received my BSc degree in Electronics Engineering in 2010 and my MSE degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in 2012 from Sapienza University of Rome, working on my MSE thesis in ALCOR Lab. In June 2016 I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Rome "La Sapienza", working on Inverse Problem Theory and Computer Vision.

From June 2016 to January 2017 I was a post-doctoral researcher at Alcor Lab, Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering 'A. Ruberti' (DIAG). As of February 2017 I am an Assistant Professor (RTDA) at Sapienza University of Rome, DIAG.
