I finished my studies in Theoretical Philosophy at the Catholic University of Milan (Italy) in 2018. During the last year of my master’s degree, I devoted my research on how the perception of the world is influenced by fantasy and to the field of empathy in social interaction, both adopting a phenomenological approach. I wrote my dissertation during a period at the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany, with particular attention to Marc Richir’s thought.
In March 2019, I reach the Human-Robot Interaction field of study. I started working for the ERC-funded project “wHiSPER - Investigating shared perception with robots”, to study perceptual phenomena related to sociality. At present, I am carrying out a PhD in Bioengineering and Robotics with a profile in Cognitive Robotics. Currently, I am carrying on the research on shared perception in order to understand how humans perceive when interacting with robots and to endow robots with the same interactive skills. Moreover, I am interested in cognitive architectures for robots built on a human-based approach, and in the development of the thought about the artificial Self.
I am also currently working on the themes of the ERC-funded project wHiSPER : www.whisperproject.eu/
