Current research programs

  • My research work focus on modelling data in order to author scenarios in augmented reality and virtual reality for industrial operations in order to use as a training tool or to assist workers in their complex tasks.
  • On Human Computer Interaction, my work focuses on Human Action Recognition based on Deep Learning approach in order to use it in industry for Human Robot collaboration.
