About Me

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. I work with Professor Manuela Veloso on the CoBot robots. My research is mainly on Human-Robot Interaction through Natural Language.
 Before joining the Ph.D. program at CMU I was a master student in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Sapienza University in Rome. At Sapienza University I also got my B.S. in Computer in Engeneering.
