I&;m looking for decisionmaking training which offers me the opportunity to develop new skills while strengthening those I already possess. My Ph.D. degree in Computer Science has enabled me to develop a critical thinking approach to problem solving, good organization skills and the ability to work under pressure. I am able to work well both on my own initiative and as a part of a team. My greatest strengths are adaptability, perseverance and a positive attitude which helps me to reach successful solutions in challenging situations. I strongly believe that there is always opportunity for both personal and professional selfimprovement, so I try to learn something new from every experience.
· Scientific contributions: peer reviewed articles in major journals avg. . per year since Ph.D. · "Fondo Giovani" Research Scholarship, MIUR, Government of Italy, three years · For five years I successfully balanced my B.S. and M.S. studies with the special needs required by my mother totally paralyzed as a result of a rare disease ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. In both degrees I graduated summa cum laude.

January to present ATR/IRC, Kyoto, Japan Visiting Researcher supervisor prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro. Main goal was the investigation on the essential elements for representing and trasferring humanlike presence by using teleoperated android robot such as the Telenoids and the Geminoids . As a support to my research, I designed and developed the software system controlling the robots Geminoid HI, the Geminoid F and the Telenoid R. I also designed and developed a multiple camera D head detection and tracking system for the Geminoid HI and Geminoid F. This collaboration has resulted in the scientific production listed in the "Publications" section.
