I obtained my BSc and MSc in Informatics and Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Perugia, Italy, respectively in 2003 and 2006.
From March to July 2007 I have worked as external collaborator in the Imaging and Vision lab at the University of Milan-Bicocca.
Since July 2007 I am working towards my PhD degree in LTS2 and LTS4 lab at EPFL under the guidance of Prof. Pierre Vandergheynst (advisor) and Prof Pascal Frossard (co-advisor).
