Associate Professor
Speaker Bio

I am from Cagliari, Sardinia, an Italian island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. I graduated as an electronic engineer from the University of Cagliari, Italy, and I got a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Granada, Spain.

My research at DTU is in the field of Neurorobotics, in particular, it is focused on an understanding of a modular approach for developing brain structures and connecting them for controlling different robotic platforms, e.g. modular robots, musculoskeletal robots, humanoids robots, and soft-robots. Most of my research has been performed in the context of European Projects (Sensopac, HBP, BioModular).

Current research interests are in the following areas: Neuro-robotics, Neuromorphic Engineering, Bio-inspired control systems, Artificial Intelligence, and Applied Computational Neuroscience. The work has regarded adaptive motor control, human-robot compliant control, models of cerebellar control, and machine-learning algorithms.
