I graduated in Mathematics at UniversitÓ Statale degli Studi di Milano, Italy, in 2004 and in 2005 I have been researcher at Tampere International Center for Signal Processing, Finland. In 2008 I received a Ph.D. in Information Technology at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione, Politecnico di Milano, Italy, where I have also been Post Doctoral researcher.

Currently, I am an assistant professor at Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione, Politecnico di Milano, and I am actively collaborating with Computational Imaging group in the Department of Signal Processing, Tampere University of Technology.

My research interests encompass two different areas: computational intelligence and image analysis and enhancement. In particular, my research activity covers the following lines: learning methods for nonstationary environments, change/anomaly detection, computational imaging, and image restoration.
