    "ci" is a particle (particella pronominale) with different meanings.
    Sometimes "ci" means "a noi"
    ci piace il gelato = a noi piace il gelato
    or
    ci penso io = penso io a questo (ci = a questo)

    I think in this case makes the verb "fare" stronger because you can say "cosa fai qui?" and the meaning of the sentence is the same.

    More about "ci" you can read here, examples and meanings:
