Joshua Zonca obtained his Ph.D. in Cognitive & Brain Sciences from the Centre for Mind/Brain sciences (CIMeC) at the University of Trento. His doctoral work focused on the investigation of the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying the generation of adaptive strategies in individual and interactive decision-making contexts.
Currently, he works as post-doctoral fellow in the COgNiTive Architecture for Collaborative Technologies (CONTACT) unit at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) to explore the interaction dynamics predicting successful cooperation in human-human and human-robot interaction.
