Alessandra Scicchitano, PhD

My expertise is a mix of technology, software development, human experience, UX/UI and product strategy. But above all I focus on human beings because I believe that tech can achieve the highest impact when it improves people's life.

"An Italian living in Switzerland with a too complicated surname."
I have been breathing technology since I was 18 years old. I have a degree in Computer Engineering, a PhD in Systems and Computer Engineering and a diploma in UX Research and Design. I worked as Researcher, Software Engineer and Project Manager for more than 10 years in different technical projects, most of them funded by the European Commission. I've published several peer-reviewed papers and traveled the world to present my work at different international conferences.

My deep knowledge and experience cover different fields from Network Performance to Emerging technologies like AI and VR passing through Cybersecurity and Identity Management.

Few years ago I started AURES to merge my experience with another strong passion. The one for the human being and the brain. Since then I'm a strong advocate for human centred technology focusing on improving human experience and quality of life. I'm also a University Lecturer teaching at the Swiss Business School.
