My goal is to create solutions that help improve people’s lives and accelerate our progress towards a more inclusive and sustainable future. I’m interested in the evolution of our relationship with technology and understanding its impact on society. How might we evolve technologies to adapt to us, enhancing our human capabilities and helping in our everyday life?
At Google, I’m helping to shape the future of Personal AI and build solutions that are easy to use, always helpful, and accessible to everyone. Through natural interactions, contextual awareness, and human literacy – we have the opportunity to enable more people to have frictionless access to knowledge, boost creativity and productivity, and make things happen on users’ behalf.
Currently focusing on increasing Bard’s capabilities.
At Zoox, acquired by Amazon, I was responsible for the Product Experience organization – reinventing personal mobility by building a fully autonomous fleet of robotaxi designed from the ground up to make the future safer, cleaner, and more enjoyable for everyone. I led the Research, Design, Creative, Prototyping, and Product teams.
Previously at Microsoft, I had the opportunity to work on the incubation of innovative applications, platforms, and devices:
– Microsoft HoloLens 1 and 2
– A portfolio of Mixed Reality applications (AR, VR) for both consumers and enterprises, including Remote Assist
– New category of devices such as Surface Hub 2, Surface Duo
– Special projects around AI and spatial computing
Born in Pistoia (Italy), I studied design in Florence. I’m a self-taught programmer interested in human-computer interaction, the augmentation of human capabilities, ambient computing, social robotics, and the combination of design, art, business, philosophy, and technology.
Following my passions, I lived in London, Stockholm, New York, Seattle, and now San Francisco.
Leading teams, I strive to build inclusive environments that foster creativity and enable everyone to express their full potential – coaching and developing the next generation of leaders.
I love sharing my passion and experience for product design through coaching and teaching.
