Polytechnic University of Milan
I received a PhD cum laude in Geomatics and Infrastructures at Polytechnic University of Milan. Since 2006 I have been directly concerned with the 3D modeling work from images and laser scans. My research activities are based around surveying, photogrammetry and computer vision with terrestrial, aerial and satellite images, remote sensing and vision metrology.
I have had numerous papers published at international level. I like to teach advanced tools for 3D modeling from digital images not only to expert surveyors, but also to people interested in accurate measurements from affordable tools (mainly digital cameras).
I have worked in several countries (Italy, Canada, Jordan, Bahrain, Belgium, UK, etc.) during my participation to different research projects. I have participated to numerous surveying activities with modern digital tools based on photogrammetry and laser scanning, and I have trained different specialists from different fields during capacity building projects.
I believe that the technological progress achieved in the latest years has open new opportunities for advanced 3D modeling. Results can still be greatly improved by developing more efficient algorithms!
