I am a researcher in educational robotics, embodied artificial intelligence, interaction design and video games at Disney Research Zürich. I admire the complexity of the universe and enjoy the knowledge that we have acquired and structured as a species. Therefore, my long-term research goal is to improve our understanding of system-level adaptation in machines, animals and humans.

Recently, I have concentrated my research on making robots and intelligent agents usable by non-specialists. I have approached this question from two directions, first by allowing beginners – even young children – to program robots graphically, and second by devising models to teach behaviours to robots. Through this process, I think that we can better understand various aspects of cognition that elude our understanding.

I fortuitously met people in my life who have enriched my horizon. Thanks to them, there are a music and a movie sections on this site.
