About me (CV)

I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Group at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona, Spain (UPFellows grant, Marie Skłodowska-Curie CoFund Action). I obtained my PhD in Robotics from the University of Genoa while I was hosted by the Institute of Sciences and Technologies of Cognition (ISTC-CNR) in Rome. Successively, I have been post-doctoral research associate at Imperial College London in the Personal Robotics Laboratory  and at King’s College London in the Laboratory for Morphological Computation and Learning. I have been visiting researcher at the Department of Computer Science in University of Massachusetts Amherst and in the Reykjavik University.

My research interests span from Robotics to Computational Neuroscience and Machine Learning.  I am currently interested in active perception and adaptation in complex social environments. In particular, I am working on the issues related to online learning and exploration. While these topics are becoming more and more popular in computational sciences because of the increasing availability of data and applications in virtual (Web, social networks) and, now even more, physical (social robotics and autonomous cars) environments, its computational constraints pose theoretical questions also relevant for other disciplines, such as Neuroscience. These computational complexities escalate in presence of common features of real world applications and in particular of the open-world assumption.
