Profile
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at IMT Institute for Advanced
Studies, Lucca, Italy. My research activity is focused on the design and implementation of a low cost
sensor for image-based high-throughput plant phenotyping, and the development of a context-aware
compression algorithm on resource-constrained devices.
My main interests are in data compression, computer vision, machine learning, computational
intelligence, cloud computing and life science applications.
My work has spanned a diverse set of topics, at the intersection of different fields. Topics in which
I have produced original contributions include: image compression, colour space transformations,
image segmentation, cloud resource allocation, fuzzy recommender systems, and nonnegative matrix
factorizations.
