Google ScholarLinkedin CV



I am a researcher at IDSIA in Lugano since May 2020.

Previously, I have been a post-doc at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland (from October 2019 to April 2020); Idiap Research Institute, Martigny, Switzerland (January 2018 - August 2019); CNRS-University of Montpellier, France (April 2015 - December 2017). From April to November 2015, I have been a visiting researcher at the CNRS-AIST Joint Robotics Laboratory of Tsukuba, Japan. In June 2015, I participated in the DARPA Robotics Challenge as member of AIST-NEDO team. In March 2015, I received my Ph.D. in System Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, and, in January 2011, my Master's degree in Electronic Engineering from the same University. From January to July 2014, I have been a visiting scholar at CNRS-University of Montpellier, France, and from May to December 2010, visiting student at Örebro University, Sweden.

My research interests are robotic control, machine learning for robotic perception, humanoid robots, visual servoing.
