I AM NOT a Graphic Designer.
I DO NOT make chairs.
I achieved the Master of Science Degree in Design della Comunicazione among the Politecnico di Milano, Scuola del Design in 2007. My thesis “Make in Italy” was about a collaborative platform for connecting SMEs and Designers.
During my graduation years I attended the ASP – Alta Scuola Politecnica, a multidisciplinary school founded by Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino restricted to 150 young and exceptionally talented students. My team worked on a home automation project focusing on Healthcare, Data Visualization and Wearables trends.
In 2006 I’ve been selected for the contest “Dac.tool – Design for Arts & Crafts” aimed at young Designers: a 1 year collaboration followed for a Made in Italy fashion brand that led to the digitalization of their whole catalog.
I work as User Experience specialist for agencies like H-FARM, VISUP and AKQA, but also with startups, SMEs and Institutions covering several fields: Fintech, Retail, Internet of Things, Business Intelligence, Social Communities, Collaborative Platforms, Connected TVs, Kiosks, Softwares as a Service, Publishing, E-commerce, Healthcare, Fashion, Sports.
I am Adjunct Professor at COmeta (Inclusive Design for Autism) – Laboratorio di Metaprogetto for 2nd year Industrial Design students – where I teach User Research techniques and Data Visualization basics.
I am Faculty Member at POLI.design.
I am Technical Director and founding member of the Experience Design Academy by POLI.design, a polytechnic centre of excellence dedicated to User Experience: I coordinate the Higher Education Course in User Experience Design and the Master in User Experience Psychology – in collaboration with Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.
