Humanoid Sensing and Perception
Research center

I am a Post Doctoral researcher in the Humanoid Sensing and Perception (HSP) research line. The main fields of my research are: computer vision, machine learning and humanoid robotics. The main thread of my research is the improvement of the vision systems for humanoid robots towards a more natural, efficient and intuitive learning process,  involving human robot interaction and the development of efficient algorithmic solutions.

I graduated in Software and Electronics Engineering at the University of Perugia, Italy, in 2013 and I obtained an M.D. with honors in Software and Automation Engineering at the same university in 2016. I received the Ph. D. in Bioengineering and Robotics from 2016 to 2020, at  the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in collaboration with the University of Genoa, under the supervision of Prof. Lorenzo Natale and Prof. Lorenzo Rosasco.
