I am an Associate Professor (Chargé de cours) in the Department of Computer Science, University of Namur, Belgium

From September 2016 to August 2018 I have been a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Middlesex University, London, UK

From September 2010 to September 2016, I have been a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Aberystwyth University (UK), where I was a member of the Intelligent Robotics Group

In 2003, I received a PhD in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Sussex, Brighton, UK. In 1996, I graduated in Experimental Psychology from the University of Rome "Sapienza", Rome, Italy.

My research interests fall into the interdisciplinary domain of bio-inspired robotics and computational intelligence. I draw inspiration from nature to design control mechanisms to allow artificial agents to operate in a complex environment and to learn from their experience in an autonomous way. The objective of my research work is two-fold. On the one hand, my aim is to engineer autonomous adaptive systems by designing control mechanisms underpinning complex behavioural, social, cognitive, and communication capabilities. On the other hand, I design computational and robotics models of complex behavioural and cognitive skills to generate new and alternative hypotheses concerning the operational principles of cognition and learning in natural organisms.
