As of 2014, I have been working as a Freelance Mobile Developer. I developed ad-hoc Android solutions upon client requests. I take great care over the course of the entire app life-cycle, from requirements analysis to debugging and deployment.   I usually develop my products using Android native development. I've experienced and solved several common mobile issues such as async execution, power consumption and devices different form factors.

    Thesis title: Hand gesture recognition in a multi-sensor wearable environment
    Supervisor: Prof. Vincenzo Gervasi

    Abstract:
    Hand gestures play a fundamental role in human interaction. In this thesis we investigate if consumer-level wearable devices can be exploited to support hand gesture recognition. In particular we present a system comprising two wearable devices positioned on a user’s arm (an LG G Watch R and a Thalmic Myo). These two devices collect data from accelerometer sensors and electromyographic sensors. Readings was filtered, segmented and stored. We tested our system with ten different users with a gesture set composed by twelve gestures. Collected signals was used to build a recognizer and we evaluated the recognition accuracy of our model within different test cases.

      Thesis title: Porting a framework for gestures recognition on Android platform
      Supervisor: Prof. Antonio Cisternino


      Abstract:
      In this thesis we ported the GestIT library on Android platform. GestIT was available in C# and we adapted it to work with Android mobile devices. Furthermore, we developed an App to demonstrate GestIT features: Gesture Paint.

        hobby_scout

        From 2001, I’m a member of AGESCI, the local scout association. In particular, I’m a member of Pisa 4 scout group.

        From 2001 to 2006 I’ve followed the boy scout program, and from 2006 to 2011 I’ve followed the rover scout program (venturing). Scouting represents a fundamental experience of my life. With boy scouts, I’ve discovered the importance of nature and I’ve learned to respect it. Scouting represented a fundamental activity even for character development and it taught me to assume my own responsibilities.

        From 2011, I decided to offer my time to my association as a scout leader, I’ve taught scout techniques to young guys from 11 to 20 years old. I’ve completed the wood badge course, a scout leadership program, composed by three different camps (CFT, CFM, CFA). During these camps I’ve learned advanced communication and leadership skills, fundamental for my scout leader career.hobby_foto

        From 2013, I’m a member of BitPrepared, a group of (mad) scout leaders with IT skills. We organize every year a scout camp for boy scouts (11-16) where we teach how computer science can improve scout techniques. Take a look at our software on GitHub.

        I enjoy taking photos, in particular, still life or street photography photos. I’m just a newbie, my cam is a Nikon D3200. Take a look at my sets on 500px or Flickr.

        hobby_marioI also like singing and playing acoustic guitar. I usually listen (and play) rock, pop and folk music, in particular traditional Irish music.hobby_guitar
        Finally, I’m a Nintendo fan! My favorite IPs are Super Mario & The Legend of Zelda, but my favorite game is Super Smash Bros!
