I am a postdoctoral researcher in Robot Learning carrying out my research activities in the Dynamic Legged Systems Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT).

My goal is to endow robots with the ability to autonomously acquire motor skills through a better use of the data obtained from its interaction with the world. My research is mainly supported by the design and application of (deep) reinforcement learning, optimal control and supervised/unsupervised learning techniques.
