Biography

I was born in Brazil, but spent most of my life in Argentina, where I got my Software Engineering degree. During my studies, I initially focused on artificial intelligence, but then moved to computer graphics and computer vision. Currently I am doing a PhD at Inria (France), working on Spatial Augmented Reality. The research questions driving my PhD are:

  1. How can we interact with an augmented physical world?
  2. How can this interaction enrich our daily life?

In order to answer that, we borrow inspiration from related fields such as Tangible User Interfaces, Ubiquitous Computing and Multi-Display Environments.
