About me

Much of my fabric is woven out of borrowed bits and pieces of experiences of thousands of famous individuals whom I never met face to face, and almost surely never will, and who for me are therefore only “virtual people”.

I Am a Strange Loop – Douglas Hofstadter


I’m Silvia Tulli, a PhD Candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at Técnico in the research group of Artificial Intelligence for People and Society  (GAIPS – INESC-ID). My project is part of the ANIMATAS Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN H2020. My research is supervised by Ana Paiva, co-advised by Francisco Melo, and shared with my closest colleague Ramona Merhej.

From January 2020 I started my secondment period at Sorbonne in the research group of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIRSorbonne University) co-advised by Mohamed Chetouani.

I’m interested in delving deeper into robotics and machine learning as disciplines of emulating living processes. Currently focusing on agents’ plan explainability for learning purposes.
