I was born in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, in 1979. In April 2004, I earned the Laurea Degree in Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Padova, Italy, presenting a thesis on image interpolation.
Since 2006 to 2008 I carried out the Ph.D. course in Electrical Engineering and Communications at the same University, and I defended a thesis entitled Color Image Reconstruction for Digital Cameras. Since April 2008 until October 2008 I was at the Audiovisual Communications Laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) of Lausanne, Switzerland, as a Visiting Student.
I have performed several technical advices on image processing, video compression, telecommunication systems and computer vision.
My research interests include image interpolation, in particular demosaicking and super-resolution, image restoration and enhancement (such as denoising and deblurring), regularization theory, and video coding.
I am a Student Member of the IEEE and a reviewer for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. I received the 2008 L. Marenesi Fellowship from the University of Padova and the IBM Travel Grant during the 2008 Visual Communications and Image Processing Conference.
The METACAMERA project aimed to investigate and implement the real-time handling of wide bandwidth picture content from the high resolution, high frame rate cameras that will be demanded for future D-film, E-cinema and broadcast applications. A functional model of such a camera was developed in the MetaVision project. It has been modified into a field-test-capable prototype and used as a research tool to enable the project to study, identify and deliver technologies for transferring the high bandwidth content in real-time through existing and anticipated infrastructures, by the implementation of selective downscaling and motion handling approaches. This included conversion to other resolutions and hardware accelerated frame rate format conversion.MetaCamera partners
