My research activities fit broadly into Spatial Reasoning — how we can reason about the layout of objects in space in both 2D and 3D to provide insight or retrieve relevant information.
Our group is always looking for good PhD candidates, so if you are interested in doing a PhD in Visual Reasoning please contact me to discuss the options. We have yearly calls in the Italian education system and other options depending on the type of PhD. For more details review research areas and publications especially before making an inquiry or application.

This open position, up to two years, is financed in the context of the H2020 European Project MEMEX (MEMories and EXperiences for inclusive digital storytelling – Grant Agreement 870743) – an interdisciplinary effort to provide Augmented Reality (AR) systems to impact the European society at large.
The candidate will have the opportunity to work on realistic problems involving leading European research centers and companies with the aim to create a novel AR platform able to understand the semantic scene structure of the environment using an RGB video stream from a smartphone.Apply Online
We recently published three videos on the pilot locations, Paris, Barcelona and Spain, of the MEMEX Project. This challenging collaboration effort came together during the second wave of COVID so a massive effort was needed by the Michael Culture Association, NOHO Limited, Fundacio Interarts per a la Cooperacio Cultural Internacional (InterArts), Mapas das Ideias and Dédale.
