Research interests

I worked in a project aimed to study the nature of probabilistic reasoning. I worked at this project with Dott. Maurizio Cardaci and Max Plach Institute of Berlin, Germany.
I’m currently interested in GUI usability and analysis of human-computer interaction. I would like to extend my interests and knowledge about the role of eye movements in computer interfaces evaluation. My current work is aimed at understanding the structure of thought in people exploring graphical user interfaces. In this period I am studying the usability of desktop environments developed for the X-Window system on Unix-like platforms (particularly Gnome and KDE). I’m analyzing these environments applying usability methods, expecially cognitive walkthrough and heuristic analysis.
