Research summary

My research interests focus on sensory urbanism, specifically on the multisensory integration between visual and auditory modalities, and digital simulation tools for visualising urban data sets in their temporal, sensory and spatial peculiarities. 
Aim of my research is to understand how tools and devices, developed in disciplines not directly linked with the urban studies, can be conceived as effective solutions able to describe, through experiential simulations and multimodal representations, the everyday users’ experiences in the urban atmospheres.
