Profile

I am Senior Researcher in e-health group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler research centre and Lecturer in department of Psychology and Cognitive Science at University of Trento, Italy. Previously I was with CREATE-NET research centre.

My research interests are in computational modelling of human behaviour and how these models can be applied in healthcare applications, mainly in disease detection and prediction. In this and related areas I am involved in several projects where some of our work has been featured in MIT Technology Review, The Telegraph, Le Figaro and other media outlets.

I'm also an Expert Evaluator for European Commission on Horizon 2020 Programme and Steering Committee member of Pervasive Health conference.

I supervise a number of PhD and Masters students.

During 2009 I was a visiting researcher at Georgia Tech. Previously I was with TSSG at Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland where I finished my PhD, during which I was a visiting research student at Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) in Singapore.

My sister Dr. Qendresa Osmani is also a scientist, in pharmaceutical industry.
