This is a placeholder for a list of participants at the VVV11 summer school. It usually gets filled up at the first day of school, and is strictly voluntary. We're expecting 40-something people this year. Feel free of course to add yourself before arrival at the school. For inspiration, see VVV10/VVV09/VVV08/VVV07/VVV06).
For editing, you can ask for your own username/password (email email@example.com to get an account) or use the username "vvv11" and password "s*str*" with the first star replaced with "e" and the last star replaced with "i".
If you would like to, include in your profile a list of possible ideas for collaboration.
IIT and Univ. of Genoa, pasa_(at)_liralab.it, homepage I am senior scientist at the IIT and assistant professor at the University of Genoa where I teach courses on anthropomorphic robotics and intelligent systems for the bioengineering curricula. I hold a MS with honors (in 1994) and PhD (in 2000) in electronic engineering both from the University of Genoa. From 2001 to 2002 I was postdoctoral associate at the MIT AI-Lab where I worked on various humanoid robotic platforms. I am assistant professor at the University of Genoa since 2005 and with IIT since 2006. My research activities are in the fields of biologically motivated and humanoid robotics and in particular in developing life-long developing artificial systems that show some of the abilities of natural systems.

I work at the University of Plymouth as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher in the European project RobotDoC that is an Initial Training Network on developmental robotics. My research topic is about the grounding of language in humanoid robots, with particular attention to abstract words.

I am a Professor of Practice in the Computer Science Department of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Worcester, MA USA. I am part of the inter-disciplinary team which created the WPI Robotics Engineering (RBE) program, the first in the US to offer a four-year degree in RBE. Some of my projects: -- Moonraker: Winner of the NASA Centennial Challenge Lunar Regolith Excavation contest, 2009. -- Prometheus: Rookie of the Year, Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, 2010. -- Oryx: Winner, NASA RASC-AL sample return competition, 2011.
