Biography

Biography

I am currently working, at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP), for the S3A Future Spatial Audio in the Home project. My focus is on combining audio-visual features to study the acoustical characteristics of different environments. Furthermore, for this project, I also work on the generation of reverberant spatial audio objects, by selecting sets of parameters from multi-channel room impulse responses, to create an editable spatial description of the room acoustics.I initially joined the University of Surrey, as a postgraduate research student in January 2014. In addition to the S3A project, at that time I was involved in the University Defence Research Collaboration (UDRC) in Signal Processing, an academia led partnership project between industry and defence. The purpose of my research was to investigate the audio multipath problem, in order to model convolutive source separation techniques. Prior to this, I worked as a researcher at Loccioni Group, Italy, where I contributed to the Green@Hospital European project. I received my BSc and MSc degrees in Electronic Engineering from Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy, in 2009 and 2012 respectively, having prepared my final dissertation on a placement with Aalto University School of Science and Technology, Finland. There, I worked on the synthesis of the Clavinet, a musical instrument, by employing digital waveguides, and finite difference time domain techniques.
