[About](index.html) [Teaching](teaching.html) [Publications](publications.html) ![ ](./assets/photo.png width="250px" align=left)I am an assistant professor at the [Department of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence](https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/about/schools/tshd/departments/dca), Tilburg University. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Adaptive Systems Group, Humboldt University of Berlin. Before joining the Adaptive Systems Group, I was a Ph.D. student (and then a postdoctoral researcher) at the BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. My research interests span Humanoid Robotics, Computational Neuroscience, Cognitive Systems, and Machine Learning. --- If you are an undergraduate (or an M.Sc.) student looking for a thesis or lab rotation project at the intersection of machine learning, neuroscience, psychology, and robotics, drop me an email in **English** anytime. --- **News:** * September 26, 2022: Our paper has been accepted at [Humanoids 2022](https://www.humanoids2022.org/) * September 5, 2022: Our paper has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Social Robotics, special issue on "Human-like Behavior and Cognition in Robots." * July 1, 2022: I joined Tilburg University as an assistant professor. * June 15, 2022: Our paper has been accepted at [ICDL 2022](https://icdl2022.qmul.ac.uk/). * May 31, 2022: Our paper has been accepted at [RO-MAN 2022](http://www.smile.unina.it/ro-man2022/). * May 4, 2022: I gave a lecture talk on Robots in Human-Robot and Robot-Robot Interactions for [Q-Team Course](https://sites.google.com/view/dorispischedda/opportunities?authuser=0). * April 22, 2022: Our [workshop](https://www.trustworthyrobots.eu/rtss-workshop/) proposal has been accepted at [IROS 2022](https://iros2022.org/). * July 19, 2021: Our paper has been accepted at [Nature Scientific Reports](https://www.nature.com/srep/).
