Welcome to my personal blog/web site.
My name is Fabrizio Nunnari. I’m a computer scientist, software developer and researcher.
My interest in computers began late in the ’80. I was about 12 years old when I first got in touch with a Commodore Plus/4 (C16 brother). Later on I extensively used Amiga computers, PCs with both Linux and Win, while I’m recently focusing on MacOSX and Android.
At the age of 14 I wrote my first “videogame” (sort-of) in basic, then I spent a lot of time in studying Amiga hardware architecture, Motorola 680×0 assembler, followed by C and C++.
My passion became my job. I’ve got a degree in computer science in 2001 and a PhD in 2005. Nowadays I mainly use Java and C++ to develop interactive 3D real-time applications. My research focus is on real-time 3D rendering, multimedia systems, interactive installations and procedural character animation.
The name of the site? I always considered myself a “360 degrees programmer”. I’ve put my interest in many of the fields that computer science offers: algorithm programming, software architectures, real-time systems, 2D and 3D rendering, databases, networking, system administration, web services, compilers and interpreters, scripting languages, artificial intelligence, ontologies, graphics rendering, physical simulation, computer-human interfaces, data visualization, procedural character animation, and more. Driven by curiosity, I managed to work on integrating many different technologies into complex and rich frameworks.
A link to my Curriculum Vitae.
Since 2013 I’m researcher at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI, Deutsche Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz GmbH), Sign Language Synthesis and Interaction group.
From 2005 to 2011 I was lead developer and research programmer at the ASA-Lab, Virtual Reality and Multi Media Park, Torino, Italy.

Of course I have also a Facebook profile.
Hobbies? Sitting in front of a computer is not the only way I spend my time. I like: running, tango argentino (!), and contemporary dancing (!!)
