I am a postdoctoral researcher at the iCub Facility with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), working in Dr. Lorenzo Natale‘s group. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at KTH, Sweden, working with Prof. Petter Ögren.
In April 2017, I received the Ph. D. in Computer Science, from the same institute, supervised by Prof. Petter Ögren, Prof. Dimos V. Dimarogonas, and Dr. Yiannis Karayiannidis. In the Spring semester 2016, I was a visiting scholar at Control and Dynamical Systems lab of Caltech, supervised by Prof. Richard Murray.
My principal interests lie in Behavior Trees. I am also interested in control of hybrid systems, automated planning and software architectures with direct applications on robotics platforms.

To those who received a copy of the book “Behavior Trees in Robotics and AI: An Introduction” printed in black and white, please contact the publisher directly at randi.cohen@taylorandfrancis.com and request a replacement copy (in color) for free. Apparently, the production error affected both the printed and the ebook.
