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 a “mention très bien” (GPA: 16+/20).
My studies were part of the EIT Digital Master School, an initiative of the European Union, 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 front-end developer, both as a freelance and full-time in digital agencies.
