Brief Bio
Manuela Chessa is a Postodoctoral Research scientist at Dept. of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering of the University of Genoa. She received her MSc in from the University of Genoa, Italy, in 2005, and the Ph.D. in Bioengineering from University of Genoa in 2009, under the supervision of Prof. S. P. Sabatini. She has been working in the PSPC Lab since 2005, and from 2015, she is with the SLIPGURU Research Group (www.slipguru.unige.it). Her research interests are focused on the study of biological and artificial vision systems, on the development of bioinspired mo dels, and of natural human-machine interfaces based on virtual, augmented and mixed reality. She studies the use of novel sensing technologies (e.g. Microsoft Kinect, Leap Motion, Intel Real Sense) and of visualization devices (e.g. 3D monitors, head-mounted-displays, tablets) to develop natural interaction systems, always having in mind the human perception. In particular, she is active in studying misperception issues, visual stress and fatigue that arise by using such systems. She has been involved in several national and international research projects. She is author and co-author of 39 peer reviewed scientific papers, both on ISI journal and on International Conferences, of 5 book chapters, and of 2 edited book. ... More >>
