Manuela Chessa

Senior Research Fellow

I am a Postodoctoral Research scientist at the Dept. of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS) of the University of Genoa.
I received my MSc in Bioengineering 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. I have been working in the PSPC Lab since 2005, and from 2015 I am with the SLIPGURU Research Group, under the supervision of Dr. Fabio Solari.

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, tablets) 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.
