About Luigi

This is me

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Control and Computer Engineering (DAUIN) at Politecnico di Torino, Italy, working in the e-Lite research group.

I received my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, in 2010 and 2014, respectively. The topic of my Ph.D. dissertation was "Interacting with Smart Environments: Users, Interfaces, and Devices".

My research mainly focuses in Human-Computer Interaction. More specifically, I investigate how people can make their experiences with computers more personal, thus overcoming challenges in interaction between humans and computers in complex settings. As such, my work is often applied to Internet-of-Things and distributed environments, and systems empowered by Artificial Intelligence.

I serve as a reviewer for several international journals and conferences and I am an Associate Editor for the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS) and IEEE Internet of Things journal. I was a department editor for the ACM student magazine XRDS up to December 2013, Associate Editor for IEEE Access, and an AC (LBW) for CHI 2019 and 2020. I was an AC for CHI 2021 and 2022, CSCW 2021, IUI 2022, and INTERACT 2021. I am currently an AC for CHI 2023 and IUI 2023. I serve as Vice President for Finance in the ACM SIGCHI Executive Committee. I am an ACM, ACM SIGCHI, and IEEE member. Among local chapters, I am a member of ACM SIGCHI Italy. I served as the Young Professionals Representative for the IEEE Computer Society Italy Chapter until 2021 and I was the Young Professionals Representative for the IEEE Italy Section up to 2019.

On March 20, 2017 I was inducted as a professional member of Eta Kappa Nu (HKN), the honor society of IEEE.

In April 2017, I was selected as a member of the inaugural class of the ACM Future of Computing Academy (FCA). Academy members are tasked with becoming "the voice of the future of the computing field at large and of ACM specifically." From July 2019 to June 2021, I have served as FCA Vice-Chair.
