I am a researcher here at the Interaction Lab, working for the EU-founded project DREAM, the VGR-fuounded project DesTex, and the AIR project, funded by the Knowledge Foundation. My research involves robot learning, human robot interaction, and modeling various aspects of human cognition. This work takes form in the development of robots used in therapy for children with autism spectrum disorder and the study of human and robot tactile interaction. I have also a big heart for robot learning from demonstration and wrote my PhD thesis on the topic, titled Cognition Rehearsed - Recognition and Reproduction of Demonstrated Behavior, presented January 2012. The thesis presents novel techniques for learning from human demonstration, inspired by several cognitive and neurocomputational models of learning.
