Cristian Bernareggi graduated at Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy) in computer science in 2002 and took his PhD in computer science in 2006 focussing on methods and computer applications to facilitate blind students in studying mathematics. He has collaborated on European projects relating to science education of sight impaired. He collaborates to disseminate knowledge about assistive technology and has published numerous technical and scientific papers about human computer interaction and technology for people with disabilities. Cristian has spearheaded a project for Sustain for Life at Kisoro Demo School in Uganda to use computer science and assistive technology to open up new learning opportunities for blind and visually impaired students. Through this innovation, the students will be able to learn all subjects taught at school, particularly English. Cristian spends a week each year in Uganda training the children and staff on this life-changing technology.
