I am interested in artificial and biological minds, and in the dynamics that emerge when biological and artificial “intelligent machines” meet (e.g. Human-Robot Interaction).
I am a researcher and Senior Lecturer at the School of Informatics – University of Skövde (Sweden). I hold a Ph.D in cognitive Systems from Linköping University, a M.Eng. in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna and a M.Sc in Computer Science from the University of Skövde (see my CV page for further details).

- My colleagues Giulia Messina Dahlberg, Erik Billing, Jessica Lindblom and I have published (Journal of Human-Robot Interaction) our proposal of a normative model for HRI education.

My research interests include:
- Biological and artificial minds (adaptive behavior, anticipation, multiple time scales, perception, embodied and situated cognition, metabolic embodiment);
- Human-Robot interaction;
- Programming by demonstration;
- Dynamic systems.
