Alessandro’s work lies at the intersection of research in human-robot interaction, artificial intelligence and robot control & planning with the goal of developing robot technologies that enable close, natural, and extended cooperation with humans. As Director of the Human Interaction and RObotics [HIRO] Group, he aims at lowering the barriers to entry for humans to naturally interact with robots, and in doing so he designs robot systems that are able to work with and around people. Prior to joining the CU Boulder faculty, Alessandro obtained his PhD from the Italian Institute of Technology in cognitive and humanoid robotics, and worked in Yale University in the fields of human-robot collaboration and advanced manufacturing.
