I am an associate professor at Instituto Superior Tecnico and a senior research at INESC-ID and at Inria (on leave).
I am interested in understand artificial and natural learning. Understanding learning gives amazing insights into the human nature and will allow to develop technologies to improve our well-being.
To this end I develop models of learning in animals and develop new learning methodologies for machines. I am interested in applications on human-robot collaboration, joint work with machines and educational technologies.
