is a postdoctoral researcher in robotics and neuroscience at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT). He received his PhD in December 2016 from the University of Cergy-Pontoise where he was working with the Equipes Traitement de l'Information et Systèmes (ETIS) laboratory. Then, he was a postdoc at the Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR) and the Neuroscience Paris-Seine (NPS) laboratories at Sorbonne Université, Paris, France. His research interests are in decision-making, social interactions, and emotion.
is the Scientific Director of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT). He holds a MSc cum laude (1994) and PhD (2000) in electronic engineering both from the University of Genoa. From 2001 to 2002, Giorgio was postdoctoral associate at the MIT AI-Lab. He was previously with the University of Genoa and from 2012 to 2019 Professor of Cognitive Robotics at the University of Plymouth (UK). His research activities are in the fields of biologically motivated and humanoid robotics and, in particular, in developing humanoid robots that can adapt and learn from experience.

received the M.A. degree in psychology from the University of Edinburgh, U.K., the M.Sc. degree in applied artificial intelligence from the University of Aberdeen, U.K., and the Ph.D. degree in machine learning from the University of Sheffield, UK. He is a currently a Professor of Cognitive Robotics with the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield. He is also a co-founder and the current Director of Sheffield Robotics, a cross-disciplinary institute across both universities in Sheffield.
leads the unit “Social Cognition in Human-Robot Interaction” at the Italian Institute of Technology (Genoa, Italy), and is an adjunct professor of engineering psychology at the Luleå University of Technology as well as visiting professor at the University of Manchester. She graduated in neuro-cognitive psychology (2006, LMU Munich), obtained PhD in psychology (2008) and the German “Habilitation” (2013) from LMU Munich. In 2016 she was awarded the ERC Starting grant “InStance: Intentional Stance for Social Attunement”. In her research, she combines cognitive neuroscience methods with human-robot interaction.
