Research interests

As a philosopher of science, I primarily work on the methodological foundations of biorobotics, Artificial Intelligence and cognitive science. More specifically, I reconstruct and analyze the validity of methodologies involving robots and bionic systems, as well as robots interacting with animals and humans, for the study of living system behaviour and cognition.

He is authors of several articles in international journals, including Biological CyberneticsPhilosophy of ScienceBiology and PhilosophyMinds and MachinesSyntheseHistory and Philosophy of the Life SciencesStudies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical SciencesFrontiers in PsychologyFrontiers in Bioengineering and BiotechnologyIEEE Robotics and Automation MagazineSistemi Intelligenti; of 3 books and several book chapters (including a chapter on Biorobotics in the Springer Handbook of Model-Based Science, edited by L. Magnani e T. Bertolotti, 2017).

My interests also concern the role of robots as tools to intervene on, and theorize about, the mechanisms of social cognition, still from a methodological perspective, and the methodological foundations of educational robotics (see an article in the IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine, 2016, on robo-ethology).

In the past I also worked on the structure of neuroscientific and cognitive explanations, and on robo-ethics.
