My research interests span across different fields, from autonomous robotics and artificial intelligence, to computational modelling and cognitive sciences. I am particularly interested in sensorimotor control in both natural and artificial systems.
Currently, I am mainly dedicated to the following themes:
spatial and temporal analysis of human activities for long-term robotics and smarthomes;
human-robot social interactions based on the study and modelling of the relation between action observation and motor response;
multisensory processing in natural and artificial agents
