Research Overview

Robotics, Cognitive Robotics, Robotic manipulation, Tactile sensing, Robot Learning, Haptics


My main research interest is in Cognitive Robotics: building intelligent robots by taking inspiration from humans, and validating theories of human cognition by testing computational models on robots. Within this general approach, my research focuses on "The Intelligence of the Hand", in robots and humans. This includes: visuo-haptic perception and exploration of objects, grasping, dexterous manipulation, affordance perception, tool use, body schema, eye-hand coordination, physical interaction and collaboration, non-verbal communication, the sense of touch.
