Luca's room

I am a PhD student in Computer Graphics at Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland.

In this website, still in progress, I publish some info about my research as well as extra stuff that I do or I like, e.g. gaming prototypes, music, teaching, sport...

This website is intended as a half way between a personal page and a blog. Other than content on computer science, it is going to contain flashes of various topics.


I work in the Perception, Display and Fabrication group led by Prof. Piotr Didyk. My PhD is supported by ERC Starting Grant, PERDY project. My current studies focus on optimizing the graphics content for immersive displays by investigating the perception of human visual system. This not only enhances the quality of the rendering but also facilitates the design of very efficient rendering techniques. Particularly, I have worked on gaze-contingency paradigm and foveated rendering. Before coming in Switzerland, I worked in robotics (Air-Cobot) and obtained a MSc from University of Calabria (Italy) with a thesis focusing on emotion recognition (University of Plymouth, UK).
