Manuela Chessa – Postdoctoral Researcher (SlipGuru Research team)
Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS), University of Genoa. Via Opera Pia 13, 16145, Genova – Italy.

Office – DIBRIS- Valletta Puggia, Via Dodecaneso 35, 16146 Genova, Italy, 2nd floor, room 226

Research interests – My research interests are focused on the study of biological and artificial vision systems, on the development of bioinspired models, and of natural human-machine interfaces based on virtual, augmented and mixed reality.

I study 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, mobile devices) to develop natural interaction systems, always having in mind the human perception.

In particular, I am active in studying misperception issues, visual stress and fatigue that arise by using such systems.
