Thomas Matteo Alisi worked for a long time as project manager and researcher at the Media Integration and Communication Center, where he received also a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering, Multimedia and TLC. His research activities spanned from semantic web to interactive environments, while during the same period he tried hard not to loose the contact with the real world and helped with server administration and project management.
Among other projects, he contributed on defining the research lines and writing the grant proposals for 3 national FIRB and 2 EU framework programmes, while managing also part of the knowledge transfer activities. He was also principal lecturer for several modules, all related to web programming languages, web design, information architecture and user experience design. Then he discovered that the time had come to speak of many other things and he is now freelancing in the UK digital media industry, but still collaborates with the University, where he occasionally manages to write a paper and a project proposal.
