I am a Lecturer in Digital Media Technology at the DMT Lab.
I started playing the piano when I was two and a half years old, and music has always been a key aspect of my life. I decided to pursue a career in music shifting away from classical piano playing in 2012, starting a degree in Music and New Technologies at the Conservatorio di Musica G. Tartini. In the three years spent there, I dove deeper into music theory and composition, broadening my knowledge in contemporary music and audio visual art installations. At the same time, I discovered my passion for developing software, and coding in general. This is the main reason why, after graduating with honours in July 2015, presenting a dissertation titled Undesired Signal, I applied for a one year traineeship at the Integra Lab, where I then decided to stay for my PhD.
My current research revolves around the study of microgestural nuances in piano playing for the creation of a more intuitive and expressive keyboard interface.
