Background and Position

I was born in Rome, Italy, in 1977. In 2001 I received the "Laurea" degree (M.Sc.) in Computer Science Engineering from the University of Rome "La Sapienza", and in 2008 the Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering from the same institution.

From November 2007 to October 2008 I was a Postdoc at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Space Agency (DLR) in Munich, Germany, headed by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Hirzinger.
From October 2008 until November 2012 I joined the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, Germany, as a Senior Research Scientist in the department of Prof. Heinrich H. Bülthoff. Over the years, I have created and led the "Human-Robot Interaction" group in the Bülthoff department. My former webpage can be found here.
Since December 2012, I am a CNRS Researcher (CR1) in the Lagadic team at Irisa, Rennes, France.

In 2008 I received an award for the best italian PhD Thesis in Automatic Control, and in 2009 the Best Video Award at ICRA'09.

I served in the Program Committee for RSS 2010, RSS 2011, RSS 2013, and as Associate Editor for IROS 2011, ICRA 2012, ICRA 2013, ICRA 2014, ICRA 2015, ICRA 2016
In 2011 I was Guest Editor for The International Journal of Robotics Research, co-organizing the special issue "Autonomous Physical Human-Robot Interaction" which was published in November 2012.
Since September 2012, I am serving as Associate Editor for the journal IEEE Transactions on Robotics.
In 2014 and 2015 I am serving as Area Chair for the RSS Conference.
In 2016 I am serving as Workshop and Tutorial Chair for the IROS 2016 conference.
