L'Oréal-UNESCO Fellow at Politecnico di Milano (Italy).
Research Assistant at the Open University (UK).
Developing hybrid solutions (Knowledge-based + ML-based) to enhance the Visual Intelligence of service robots.
I am currently funded by the L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Program to conduct research on visually intelligent robotic applications for precision agriculture.
I am contributing to the EU-funded project GATEKEEPER, which is aimed at developing innovative Robotic and Smart Home solutions to support healthy independent living for the ageing population.
My PhD research has been focused on enhancing the Visual Intelligence of service robots by combining Knowledge-driven technologies with Machine Learning. Specifically, I have developed a prototype of robot assistant which can monitor office environments in search for potentially dangerous situations (e.g., flammable items left by ignition sources, cluttered emergency exits, dangling cables, and others).
I have contributed to the EU-funded project SPICE (Social cohesion, participation, and Inclusion through Cultural Engagement), where I have explored the use of Deep Learning and Neurosymbolic Learning methods to classify artistic subjects from cultural heritage image collections.
I have been part of the organising team of the 1st Smart Cities and Robotics Challenge (SciRoc), which was held in Milton Keynes (UK) on September 2019. This was the first robotic challenge to be held in a public shopping mall, to explore the integration of robots within Smart City infrastructures.
While studying at the Pennsylvania State University, I have been a part of the Human Screenome Project, a collaboration with the Departments of Communication and Medicine at Stanford University. In the Screenomics Lab, I have developed an end-to-end solution to automatically extract the textual content of digital screenshots collected from laptop and smartphone devices, while also providing a customised search engine to navigate the extracted contents.
