My current research addresses the problem of sensing and understanding users’ interactive actions and intentions for achieving multimodal human-computer interaction in natural settings.

More specifically, I’m interested in the estimation of the human visual gaze for enhanced human-computer interaction and human-human behavior analysis, therefore my main research topics include precise eye location estimation, facial expression recognition, head and body pose estimation by means of off-the-shelves hardware. The research done so far addressed the area of analyzing the user’s behavior in his personal environment (e.g., home, car or office).
