I have a double Master’s Degree with a major in Human Computer Interaction and Design from Université Paris-Saclay in France and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden. I worked on my master thesis under the supervision of Wendy Mackay and Joanna McGrenere at the ex)situ lab. I graduated in 2016 with “mention très bien” (equivalent to “summa cum laude” / “Highest Honors.”)
My studies were part of the EIT Digital Master School, from which I received an excellence scholarship for two years. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Milan-Bicocca in Italy, where I'm from :) In between studies I have worked as a web developer.
