I am Lecturer in Robotics at ARQ (Advanced Robotics at Queen Mary), School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), UK.
Since October 2018, I am also Turing Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute.
I am interested in robot learning and cognition, with a focus on body schema, affordances, eye-hand coordination, manipulation, tool use, tactile/force sensing.
I also collaborate with VisLab, at the Instituto de Sistemas e Robotica of the Instituto Superior Tecnico (Lisbon, Portugal), as visiting associate researcher in humanoid and cognitive robotics, and with SuganoLab, at the Department of Modern Mechanical Engineering of Waseda University (Tokyo, Japan), as visiting professor in tactile sensing for robotic manipulation.
Before I was with the Biped Group of Takanishi Lab (Waseda University), and with the RBCS (Robotics Brain and Cognitive Science) Department of the IIT (Italian Institute of Technology).
