About me

I am an Associate Professor at the Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning. I received my PhD degree from the Technical University of Lisbon. Before joining KTH, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Yale Social Robotics Lab and an Associate Research Scientist at Disney Research.

The goal of my research is to develop social robots that can capturelearn from and respond appropriately to the subtle dynamics that characterize real-world situations, allowing for truly efficient and engaging long-term interactions with people.
