Humanoid Sensing and Perception
Research center

I am a Post Doctoral researcher working in the Humanoid Sensing and Perception (HSP) research line. My research focuses on the development of algorithms for object perception and their application to humanoid robots.

I graduated in Computer Engineering at the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2014 and I obtained an M. Sc. with honors in Robotics and Automation Engineering at the same university in 2018. I received the Ph.D. in Bioengineering and Robotics from 2018 to 2021 at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in collaboration with the University of Genoa.
