Soro got his M.Sc. with honours in Computer Science from the University of
Cagliari in 2006 discussing a graduation thesis titled "Range Queries over
Structured P2P Networks". In 2012 he
was appointed PhD in mathematics and scientific computing from the University
of Cagliari, defending a dissertation on "Gestures and Cooperation: Considering
non-verbal communication in the design of interactive spaces".
2000 he has been a researcher at CRS4, where he has been involved in
several research projects, funded under national and international schemes.
research interests include human-computer interaction and computer supported
cooperative work, focused on the design of multi-touch interactive surfaces
(tables and walls) and their applications, such as, to name a few,
collaborative information retrieval, exploration of multimedia databases,
collaborative software engineering. Current focus is on sensing and
understanding human gestures with the aim of creating interactive systems more
friendly to human-human interactions and cooperation.
