Hi! I am a communication designer.
I find myself at the intersection of data visualization, motion and Augmented Reality.

Recent M.Sc. graduate in Design at Politecnico di Milano supervised by DensityDesign's Research Director Michele Mauri and co-supervised by Pentagram's Partner Giorgia Lupi, while working full time as Data Visualization Designer at Accurat.

This website is currently under construction. Feel free to contact me.
