I am a postdoctoral researcher at Personal Robotics LabMy work focuses on building smart algorithms that equip machines with the capability of sensing, recognising and interpreting human behaviours for enabling adaptive and assistive interactions. I am currently working on the H2020 project entitled "PAL - Personal Assistant for a healthy Lifestyle", aiming to assist diabetic children and their caretakers with the management of the children's special needs through Charlie Nao Robot and its Virtual Avatar.
