Bio

I earned a Bachelor Degree (110/110 cum laude), Master's degree (110/110 cum laude), and a PhD in Computer Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome. My advisor is Dr Luca Iocchi, and I was a member of Prof. Daniele Nardi's group. I have been at Sapienza for one more year as a post-doc, before joining Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia. I attended a few schools, among which the Statistical Machine Learning class organized by Società Italiana di Statistica (SIS), and the 10th Machine Learning Summer School.

Here and there

From May to November 2009 I visited Prof. Andy Barto's group at UMass Amherst. In 2010 through most of 2011 I visited Dr Subramanian Ramamoorthy at the Institute of Perception, Action, and Behaviour at the The University of Edinburgh.

Teaching

  • ay 2006-2007
  • ay 2007-2008
    • Teaching assistant for the Computer Architecture II course (Calcolatori Elettronici II) with Prof. Bruno Ciciani
  • ay 2008-2009
    • Teacher (yeah!) for the Programming Techniques course (Tecniche di Programmazione) in Rieti

Robocups

I  participated in three RoboCup editions from 2006  to 2008.  I programmed AIBOs the first two years (when it was named Four Legged League), and led the software develpment of the SPQR team in the Standard Platform League to the first RoboCup with the new robot: Nao.IJCAI 2011
