I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Robotics,
Perception and Learning at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).
I received my PhD degree from the Technical University of Lisbon (IST). Before joining KTH, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the
Yale Social Robotics Lab and an Associate Research Scientist at
Disney Research Pittsburgh.
The goal of my research is to develop social robots that can capture, learn from and respond
appropriately to the subtle dynamics that characterize real-world situations, allowing for truly efficient and engaging long-term interactions with people.
