Andrea Esposito is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bari Aldo Moro. He is an active member of the Interaction, Visualization, Usability & UX (IVU) Laboratory, where his research focuses on Human-Centred Artificial Intelligence. His interests lie in Human-Computer Interaction, eXplainable Artificial Intelligence, and Human-AI Interaction.

Andrea earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Digital Communication, as well as his Master’s Degree in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) from the University of Bari Aldo Moro. He has also worked as a scholarship researcher at the university, contributing to the ISO 25000-certified project “eGLU-Box PA” and the Human-Centred AI project “SERENE,” among other research activities.

As part of his Ph.D. studies, Andrea spent six months as a visiting researcher at Ludwig-Maximilians Universität (LMU) in Munich and another six months at a corporate research laboratory with Eusoft S.r.l., gaining valuable international and industry experience. He also collaborates with the European Network of Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence “Humane-AI,” further expanding his research network and expertise.

Andrea is committed to advancing the field of Human-Centred AI, working to improve the interaction between humans and AI systems. Andrea Esposito has a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Digital Communication and a Master’s Degree in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence), both at the University of Bari Aldo Moro. Currently, he started his Ph.D. in the same University. He was a scholarship researcher at the University of Bari, working on the ISO 25000-certified project “eGLU-Box PA”, on the Human-Centred AI project “SERENE”, as well as in other research activities. He collaborates with the European Network of Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence “Humane-AI”.
