About

As postdoctoral researcher at Biomedical Robotics Laboratory (Advanced Robotics Department), I investigate the behavioural and physiological processes underlying human-machine interaction, according to the methodologies of neuroergonomicsI aim at designing and developing user-centered biomedical technologies, with particular attention to body-machine interfaces and brain-computer interfaces. 

My studies on augmented interaction (brain-controlled augmented reality feedback design for mobile control and for user training in surgical human-robot interaction) allowed me to obtain, on April 2015, a PhD in Robotics, Cognition and Interaction Technologies from IIT and University of Genova (Italy). My previous studies were focusing on cognitive-behavioural disciplines: I received a BSc in Cognitive Psychobiology (animal cognition) and an MSc in Experimental Psychology (psychometrics of user experience) at University of Padova (Italy), working meanwhile as consultant in cognitive ergonomics

Projects

Currently I work on TEEP-SLA, a 3-year (from December 2015 to November 2018, extended to May 2019) project, funded by Fondazione Roma and supported by Fondazione Sanità e Ricerca, for developing novel brain-computer interfaces and brain-robot interfaces to enable people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to interact with devices for their own goals, with particular attention to social communication and environmental exploration. TEEP-SLA is an italian acronym for "Tecnologie Empatiche ed Espressive per Persone con SLA" (Empathic and Expressive Technologies for People with ALS), highlighting how such technologies will interpret the internal state of the users in order to facilitate their volitional acts. In past, I participated (user studies) to the EU-funded project µRALP (Micro-Technologies and Systems for Robot-Assisted Laser Phonomicrosurgery).
