Research Fellow at the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) at the intersection of #Robotics, #ComputerVision and #ArtificialIntelligence. Before joining the ACRV @ QUT I worked at the IDSIA Robotics Lab & received a PhD from the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) in robotic learning for vision and actions on the iCub humanoid. Previously I worked at the Advanced Concepts Team of the European Space Agency. I studied Space Robotics in a Joint European Master Programme (SpaceMaster).
