About me


I’m a Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN Fellow and a PhD Student in Computer Science and Engineering at Técnico in the research group of Artificial Intelligence for People and Society  (GAIPS – INESC-ID).  My research is part of the ANIMATAS project, co-advised by Ana Paiva, Francisco Melo, and Mohamed Chetouani.  From January 2020 I am a visiting researcher at Sorbonne University in the research group of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR).

Currently working on my PhD thesis and the implementation of computational models to generate explanations about agent decision-making. My goal is to accelerate agents’ learning by leveraging other agents’ experiences. My approach is inspired by human social learning theories and causal models.

Research Interests:

  • Explainable Agency
  • Social Learning
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Inverse Reinforcement Learning
  • Inter-Agent Transfer Learning
  • Robotics applications of ML
  • Human-Agent Interaction
