What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?

I graduated with a master’s degree from La Sapienza, in Rome.

What are your research interests?

I have been interested in both art and computer science since I was young, thus I am always looking for ways to bridge the gap between creativity and technology.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

I want to give the ability to share information in a easier, more communicative way, and to open up more point of views in the data we have.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

I love that Data Visualization gives a scientific purpose to art and creativity. It makes complex data accessible, usable and understandable. Effectively conveying information requires a delicate balance of aesthetic form and functionality, and this is why it fascinates me.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

I don’t know yet! I’d like to continue working in research.
