Research Linguaggi Visuali e Interazione Uomo Macchina

Research in this area is aimed at improving the User Experience with modern interactive systems that affect the different spheres of an individual's life from health, work, leisure time, mobility, etc. A right combination of creativity, curiosity towards emerging technologies and experience in the field of Usability Engineering, feeds all the lines of research carried out in this area.

With particular reference to Human Computer Interaction, the most significant research areas include:

  • Participatory Design, User Centered Design (UCD) and their applications in software development processes
  • Universal design and assistive technology
  • E-inclusion
  • Multimodal Interaction
  • Mobile Health
  • ICT for Emerging Regions

As for Visual Languages, the most significant research areas include:

  • Development of Interactive Visual Systems
  • Information Visualization
  • Usability design and testing
  • Infographic
  • Visual data mining

Teaching activity:

  • Human-Computer Interaction of the Bachelor Degree in Computer Science
  • Human-Computer Interaction and Software Usability of the MSc Degree in Computer Science
  • Universal Design and Assistive Technologies (in English) of the MSc in Computer Science
  • Human Computer Interaction and Experience Design in the Internet Of Things (English) of the MSc in Computer Science
  • Enterprise Mobile Application Development of the MSc in Computer Science
  • Information Visualization of the MSc in Computer Science
  • Interactive Systems Design (English) of the MSc in Computer Science

Traineeship activities for students of the Bachelor Degree in Computer Science, aimed at the design and development of prototypes of usable interfaces for mobile / desktop / web-based / wearable systems, etc.

Research thesis on emerging topics in the field of Human Machine Interaction, Usability Engineering and Information Visualization.
