Microsoft HoloLens 2

I am a System Architect at Oculus / Facebook.

Previously, I led a cross-functional team spanning Optics, Sensors, Electrical, Power and Silicon as Display Integration Lead for MEMS Laser Displays at Microsoft HoloLens

Before that, I worked as Chip Architect at Maxim Integrated and as Manager of Application Engineering at Volterra Semiconductors with focus on Battery Management Systems (BMS) and Power Management ICs used in smartphones, laptops 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 interested in VR/AR/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.
