Working within an ethnomethodological framework, I am expert in ethnography, conversation analysis and video-analysis. My primary research focus rests on the minute details of human action-in-interaction, with particular attention to nonverbal, embodied and affective aspects, and the role of tools and technologies in multimodal interaction. Since 2012 I work in interdisciplinary teams (e.g. projects VisCoSo at ISTC-CNR (http://www.istc.cnr.it/i…), and PIE News at DISI-UNITN (pieproject.eu)), contributing to the design of diverse technologies.
