I am interested in artificial and biological behavior, and in the dynamics that emerge when biological and “intelligent” machines meet (e.g. Human-Robot Interaction).

Robots are coming. The process is, for several reasons, ineluctable. We need to prepare and adapt to the massive technical and societal implications this will have at all levels. Less pragmatically, I believe robots can be important tools for the theoretical investigation of biological minds and intelligent behavior.

I am a researcher and associate senior lecturer with the School of Informatics at the 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).

Current projects:

Action and Intention Recognition in Human Interaction with Autonomous Systems (AIR). University of Skövde, Skövde – Sweden. Funded by the Knowledge Foundation, Sweden.

Recent projects:

Multimodal Programming by Demonstration for In-Contact Tasks. Aalto University, Helsinki – Finland. Funded by the Academy of Finland.

My research interests include:

  • biological and artificial behavior (adaptive behavior, anticipation, multiple time scales, perception, embodied and situated cognition, metabolic embodiment)
  • physical human-robot interaction
  • robotics
  • programming by demonstration
  • dynamic systems
