Microsoft HoloLens

I am a Full-Stack Electrical Engineer with experience from IC design to coding and product marketing. I work as Sr. EE in the System Integration team at Microsoft HoloLens, the first fully untethered, holographic computer, enabling people to interact with high‑definition holograms. I lead a cross-functional team spanning Optics, Sensors, Electrical, Power and Silicon charted with developing HoloLens's Holographic Display.

Previously, I was System Architect at Maxim Integrated and Manager of Application Engineering at Volterra Semi where I worked on innovative Battery Management Systems (BMS) and Power Management chips used in smartphones, cars and servers.

I have a PhD in EE from Politecnico di Milano where I invented the World’s first Single-Photon Counting Camera and I spent my Postdoc at MIT working on Quantum Imaging applications of high-sensitivity cameras. My publications are listed here.

Interests

I'm very interested in Mixed Reality (MR), Contextual Computing and Internet of Things (IoT). I find applications at the border of physical and virtual/social worlds extremely fascinating.

I love to travel, discover new places and understand different cultures (most recently: Hong Kong!). I love reading books and watching movies. I support Inter Milan (in both good and bad times). I also make one of the best Tiramisu' of the San Francisco Bay Area.


 
 

What I'm doing now

I work as Sr. Electrical/Hardware/System Engineer at Microsoft HoloLens, the first fully untethered, holographic computer. I'm in charge of display integration, flexes and interconnects. HoloLens completely re-defines how people interact with the digital and real world.
