Nudge is a platform that helps patients suffering from bacterial infections to comply with their medication. Nudge Analyzes users behavior to better fit their lifestyle, providing unobtrusive alerts and human support. The system is comprised of a cloud-hosted platform and a sensing pill dispenser, which records data on antibiotic intake. Intelligent, realtime alerts driven by predictive algorithms notify of a pill intake only when the user is likely to respond to it. Nudge then collects data about antibiotic intake, creating valuable data set that will enable researchers to inform strategies and prioritize interventions to fight and understand antibiotic resistance.

  • I’m an Italian designer driven by the desire to craft new futures and a concern for practical human demands.

    I aim to create global-scale, disruptive, emotionally impactful solutions at the intersection between personal habits and emerging technologies.

    My work involves exploring the spectrum between moonshots (ideal solutions) and FMCG (consumer goods), field researching, sketching, rapid prototyping and test-making. I've also worked on projects ranging from public installations to data visualisation, from brand development to eHealth.

    I am interested in probing the edges of creativity to deliver meaningful experiences, unique interactions and visionary products.
