Deputy Director of the Robotics Lab

Assistant Professor

My primary research interests are in human-robot interaction, artificial intelligence, planning, machine learning, social interaction, and nonverbal behavior.

Professor in Computer Science

My main research interests are intelligent graphical characters, affective agent models, human-robot interaction, and interactive narrative.

Professor in Computer Science

I develop new ideas for solving difficult problems in optimisation and machine learning, and tries his best to do useful things with those ideas.

Assistant Professor

Dr. Dragone's expertise includes robotics, wireless sensor networks and software engineering. He worked in a number of EU IoT projects, and led RUBICON (fp7rubicon.eu), building integrated Robotic and IoT systems.


My research interests include mechanisms, robotics, mechatronics and their industrial, biomedical and renewable energy applications at the macro-, micro- and nano-scales.

Assistant Professor/Lecturer in Computer Science and Robotics

My main research interests are Human-Robot Interaction in more detail. She is focusing on teachable robots, social, developmental and cognitive robotics.

Assistant Professor in Computer Science

I am interested in how ideas from biology can be applied to robotics and computer science. My current research focus is on artificial biochemical networks, evolutionary algorithms, and medical applications.
