Alessandro received his PhD from the university of Cagliari (Italy) in 2012 with a thesis exploring the collaborative use of large multi-touch screens. Since then he has focused his research on the design and use of collaborative technologies in many contexts, from the family to remote communities. His current focus is on technologies to support socialisation, communication, and creativity.
