Fulvio is Assistant Professor at University of Genoa, Italy, where he teaches Software Architectures for Robotics as part of the joint European Master on Advanced Robotics (EMARO) - Robotics Engineering study curriculum.
Currently, Fulvio's research interests are in AI techniques for cognitive systems. Fulvio is working in Ubiquitous and Humanoid Robotics, with a specific emphasis on real-time SW architectures, real-time AI, knowledge representation and reasoning. Fulvio's interests are rapidly evolving towards self-aware systems and robot evolution.
Fulvio received the M.Sc. and the Ph.D. in Robotics from University of Genoa in 2003 and 2008. Fulvio has been Visiting Professor at the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand, and the Jiao Tong University, China.
Fulvio is managing coordinator of the FP7 EC-funded project ROBOSKIN, and principal investigator of the SHELL project, funded by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development.
