I am originally from Rome and currently making products at Microsoft. Previously at Nokia, Siemens Corporate Research and Prospect. I am a product designer who focuses on interaction design, UI design, design strategy and rapid prototyping. In my role, I use all of these skills to build innovative solutions that take into account the user’s needs and the user centered design process. I like to tackle challenges by first understanding the human needs involved and re-framing the problem in human-centric ways, by generating many ideas in brainstorming sessions and by adopting a hands-on approach in prototyping early in the process and testing my hypothesis with users. I believe that great work is achieved through collaboration.

I have 9 years of experience working with very talented multidisciplinary teams of product managers, designers, researchers and developers to drive design initiatives. I am a passionate customer advocate with a strong focus on the user-centered design process and a resilient problem solver who works well in teams and as an individual contributor. I am very imaginative by nature and I do my best on projects with a strong innovation component. In 2010, I graduated cum laude at the Iuav’s MA in Visual and Multimedia Communication, specializing in Interaction Design with a thesis project supervised by Gillian Crampton Smith. In my spare time I enjoy getting creative in the kitchen, drawing and inventing stories with my lovely daughter, Emma.
