After some years of working experience in the field of optical sensors production, I'm now working as Scientific Collaborator at the Swiss University of Applied Science SUPSI for the development of research projects about interactive museum exhibitions, web for accessibility, digital fabrication for assistive devices as well as teaching and coaching.

As freelancer in the field of designing interactive installations and building them using my technical knowledges as engineer.

Those knowledges consists in physical computing (interconnecting and coding for Processing, Arduino & co., Raspberry Pi, Ubuntu Mac and Windows) to manage video, sound and images playback as anything else possible, electronics circuit design for PCB production for solid custom solution, sensors choice and setup to create the desired experience, 3D modelling, printing and CNC milling for specific functional objects and solutions, lasercutting for fast production of many copies and precise parts as well as sharp graphics and text cutting/engraving on various materials (wood, plastic, metal, fabrics), video projection and mapping, some AR augmented reality solutions, web design and development, and more.

From the design point of view, I've a good sense in inventing, tailoring and simplifying in a meaningful way the balance between the type and amount of content shown, the experience and the interaction in order to avoid flows and hiccups for the users, to optimise the effectiveness and impact of the experience lived by the users and visitors.

I'm always searching for new solution to involve and share experiences and contents using the power of the technology.
