My main research interest is in mapping perception into actions to model intelligent behaviours for next-gen AI systems. I am a trained scientist in AI, robotics, ML and computational vision.
I gained my BA in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Universita' di Siena (2006) with full marks and my MS in Computer Science from the Universita' di Pisa (2010) with full marks. I obtained my PhD in AI and robotics from the University of Birmingham in 2016. I am currently a Lecturer in intelligent robotics in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham and I collaborate in the EPSRC UK-Korea Civil Nuclear Collaboration project to develop AI robotic manipulator for hazardous environments.
