Roberto Manduchi

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. My research focuses on assistive technology for the visually impaired. Specifically, I am exploring the use of mobile computer vision and wearable sensors to provide a blind person with increased spatial awareness.

I hold a “Dottorato di ricerca” in Electrical Engineering from the Universita’ di Padova, Italy. Prior to joining UCSC in 2001, I worked at Apple, Inc. and at NASA JPL.

I currently collaborate with SKERI (San Francisco), FBK (Trento, Italy), and CICATA-IPN (Queretaro, Mexico).
