About Me


Currently, I work within the Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour and the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics as a Postdoctoral Research Associate.

Prior to this, I was a Marie-Sklodowska Curie early stage researcher within the Cognitive Robotics Lab and obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Manchester. My work focused on improving the iCub’s language acquisition through perception.

During my Ph.D., I have also carried out research secondments at the University of Edinburgh Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour and at the Humanoid Sensing and Perception Research Lab within the iCub facility at IIT.

Research Interests

My research interests lie within the intersection of robot learning and control, focusing on generalisation and safe human-robot collaboration. I am broadly interested in the following topics:

  • statistical learning for dynamical and control systems
  • physics-constrained learning
  • bridging model-based and learning-based dynamical and control systems
  • safe human-robot collaboration

Moreover, I am passionate about deploying algorithms to control the dynamic behaviour of robots with the goal of moving closer to robots that can adapt in real-world environments.
