I am a Post-Doc at the Adaptive Systems Group headed by Prof. Dr. Verena V. Hafner, Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin, Germany, where I investigate the development of motor and cognitive skills in robots, by means of sensorimotor learning, internal models and internal simulations.

I am editor of a Research Topic on Re-enacting sensorimotor experience for cognition, in collaboration with Frontiers in Robotics and AI, Specialty Section: Humanoid Robotics.

I am a member of the Adaptive Systems Group, IEEE and EUCognition.

I do research also on underwater drones. See here for more details.


Previous projects I was involved in:

EU-FP7 EARS (Embodied Audition for RobotS) project.

- EU-FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) INTeractive RObotics (INTRO), involved as an Early Stage Researcher.

- Exploration Behaviour in Humans and Robots, funded by MatNat II, Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin
