  • Student working on a laptop

    Data science

    Developing methods for extracting, manipulating and analysing information from various kinds of data sets.

    Current interests include research in machine learning techniques and data mining over natural language text and speech. Example of applications range from finance to the medical domain.

  • Two students in virtual reality lab

    Virtual reality

    Focusing on the interaction between human beings and computer technology, by taking a human-centered approach.

    Thanks to a cutting edge and dedicated facility on Campus, the Simulation Hub, we investigate the design and development of pervasive interfaces, motion tracking, training simulations, collaborative and immersive environments, and the design and evaluation of video games.
