PEOPLE > Barbara Mazzarino

PhD, software engineer

She was born in Genova, Italy, on the 30th of July 1976. She received her Laurea degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Genova on April 23rd 2002, with a thesis on analysis of expressive gesture in human full-body movement. She received her PhD in Computer Science Engineering in May 2006. At the moment she works at the DIST - InfoMus Lab of the University of Genova. Her work focuses on modeling and real-time analysis and synthesis of expressive content in dance and human movement.
