Research

My research interests lie in the interaction between humans and intelligent agents, where I work to incorporate lessons and inspirations from cognitive science, neuroscience and biology.
I am a firm believer that only by focusing on interdisciplinary studies can we achieve results that can strongly impact human life.
My PhD research focused on the field of intention recognition where I have been modeling Mirroring processes in agents in order to perform efficient, human inspired plan recognition.
I have since then begun working on Explainable AI, generating explanations built on cognitive theories, considering that these explanations need to be consumed by people and therefore
taking into account human situation awareness models. My research interests further include social human agent interaction, cognitive modeling and psychology.
