I am an Assistant Professor ("ricercatore" RTD-B in Italian) at the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics of the University of Udine (Italy), and a member of the HCI Lab.

My research interests concern human-computer interaction, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and serious games.

I explore different application domains for my research such as aviation safety, health and fitness, emergency medicine, and sign languages, with a particular focus on training.

I am an Associate Editor of Virtual Reality, published by Springer Nature, and a reviewer for several international journals and conferences.
