My main research interests are in Neurorobotics, Computational Neuroscience, Rehabilitation Robotics, Human-Robot Interaction, Evolutionary Robotics, Swarm robotics and Biologically-Inspired Controllers.

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

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

My research interests focus on HRI in general and human-aware navigation, qualitative spatial relations, planning and action selection/execution, computer vision, and long-term mapping and learning in particular.

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

My main research interests are in the areas of Logic and Verification, including verification of neural networks and other machine learning algorithms, and design of novel programming languages and tools for AI verification. I lead the Lab for AI and Verification ( at Heriot-Watt. 

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

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.

Interests include development of parallel functional programming languages for HPC, embedded and FPGA systems with a focus on reliability, verification, performance, and application of resource constrained languages for autonomous robotics systems.

My research is undertaken through the Pervasive, Ubiquitous and Mobile Applications (PUMA) Lab, the Intelligent Systems Lab (ISL) and the Robotics Lab which is part of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics.
