My research combines principles from Artificial Intelligence, such as Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision, with concepts from psychology and computer graphics. I am most interested in understanding human intelligence by developing new techniques that leverage tools from these disciplines. In other words, what makes human perception different from other animals? Is it language? Emotion? Both?
From Computer Vision, I am interested in:
3D human pose and shape estimation;
2D/3D head pose and shape estimation;
and new tasks arising from zero-shot learning, transfer learning and multimodal learning.
Within Computer Graphics, I am interested in:
and human computer interaction.
For what regards Machine Learning, I am interested in:
Within Natural Language Processing, I am interested in:
language and vision,
applied psycholinguistic research.
As part of my PhD studies, I investigate ways of combining these topics to discover new and exciting tasks while solving problems and contributing to a better world. Eager to learn, pleased to discover!

Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
