I am a PhD student at Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IDSIA) located in Lugano, Switzerland. My current research focuses on human multi-robot interaction using hand and arm gestures. I am also interested in human perception, haptics, wearable electronics, teleoperation, and autonomous driving.

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Luca M. Gambardella
Co-advisor: Dr. Alessandro Giusti

Before joining IDSIA I have been working as a visiting researcher at BioRobotics Lab at Korea University of Technology and Education (Korea Tech) led by Prof. Dr. Jee-Hwan Ryu.

I like hiking, skiing, and taking photos.
