He received the Laurea Degree in Electronics Engineering and the Ph.D. in Computer Science  from the University of Genoa in 1992 and 1996. Winner of a post-laurea research grant at ST, SGS-Thompson Microelectronics S.p.A., within the Italian National Research Program on Technologies for Bioelectronics, on the track “Silicon neural circuits and architectures for sensors and learning systems”. Since 1996 he is engaged in teaching activities on “Models of Perceptual Systems” for Master’s Classes. In 1995 he promoted the creation of the “Physical Structure of Perception and Computation” (PSPC) group ( to promote the development of models that capture the “physicalist” nature of the information processing that takes place in the (visual) cortex, to understand the signal processing strategies adopted by the brain, and build novel algorithms and architectures for artificial perception machines. His research interests relate to (1) active efficient encoding of sensory information and multidimensional signal representation, (2) neuromorphic computing, (3) rehabilitation, conditioning and therapy of sensory and sensorimotor integration disorders of the developmental age, in the elderly, and in association with neurologic diseases.  He is the author of more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters and international conference proceedings.
