I am a research scientist working on robotics and machine learning.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley in the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory working with Sergey Levine.

I received a PhD from TU Darmstadt (Germany) under the supervision of Jan Peters and Marc Deisenroth, an MSc in machine learning and data mining from the Aalto university (Finland), and a BSc in computer science from the Università degli studi di Palermo (Italy).


My scientific interests focus at the conjunction of Machine Learning and Robotics, in what is known as Robot Learning.
