Post Doctoral Fellow

About Me: 

I am a post-doctoral research fellow at the BioRobotics Institute, Pisa, Italy. My research focuses on machine learning algorithms applied to the human movement recognition and analysis. I am interested in innovative strategies for postures and movements classification from inertial sensors data. Activity classification in my research is applied to the physical activity level assessment and to the improvement of the estimates of biomechanical quantities such as energy expenditure, walking speed and gait parameters.
From March to August 2012 I joined as a visiting scholar the mHealth group at the College of Computer and Information Science, Northeastern University, Boston MA, USA, where I worked on human activity classification from wrist accelerometer data.
