About me

I am a research associate at the University of Liverpool, working with Prof. Michael Fisher. Currently I am involved in the Reconfigurable Autonomy project. The aim of this project is to provide a rational agent architecture that can be configured for many different autonomous systems. I am also a member of the Logic and Computation research group.

I received a Ph.D. in Robotics, Control Systems and Mathematical Models from the University of Palermo in 2014. My research focused on Human-Robot Interaction and Gait Analysis, under the supervision of Dr. Filippo D'Ippolito.

During my Ph.D. I was a visiting student at Imperial College of London, Human Robotics group, Bioengineering department, developing the software for a rehabilitation home-based device for the upper limb, LOBSTER (LOw-cost Bimanual Self-operated Trainer for Engaging Rehabilitation) under the supervision of Prof. Etienne Burdet.
