Research interests

I created an experimental site using PHP language and I embedded in the structure some persuasion principles from the traditional theories on persuasion, adapted at the web interaction. In so doing I followed Captology’s theory by B. J. Fogg. I’m currently involved in apprenticeship at HTlab where I’m interested in persuasive strategies via the internet and in computer mediated communication. Now I’m conducting a research about CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) on communication supported by Skype. In my academic years of university I worked in a computer shop as hardware and software technician, I practiced also as teacher in some general computer lessons (base level, internet navigation, use of Microsoft Office).
