Federica Bogo

I am a scientist at Meta Reality Labs Research, working on computer vision, computer graphics and machine learning.

Before joining Meta in 2022, I spent almost six years at Microsoft (MR & AI Lab Cambridge and Zürich), where I worked on the real-time hand tracking for HoloLens 2, HoloLens Research Mode and Microsoft Mesh.

I received my PhD from the University of Padova (Italy). From the same university, I hold degrees in Philosophy (BA) and Computer Engineering (BS, MS). During part of my PhD I was an affiliated student at the Perceiving Systems Department of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (Germany), where I spent also one year as postdoctoral researcher.

I grew up in a small town in Italy, close to the Dolomites.

Research

I am interested in models of human shape, pose and motion - both to generate expressive virtual human representations and to allow efficient, automated analysis of existing images.
In the past I worked on medical imaging, design and analysis of algorithms for networks and high-performance computing.
