My dream is to discover how we can use interactive technologies to unleash intrinsic humane qualities, such as creativity


I am a 3rd year Ph.D. student in Human-Robot Interaction. My research passion lies in investigating how robotic technology can get the best of us, by making us more creative, risk-taking, and courageous. To achieve this, I founded The Robot-Creativity Project in which I am specifically studying how social robots can be used to boost creativity in children. Being equipped with creative skills is essential to adapt and thrive in this ever-changing world.

I am a Ph.D. student at ISCTE-IUL, a visiting scholar at Cornell University working in the Human-Robot Collaboration and Companion Lab, and I work closely with the Intelligent Agents and Synthetic Characters Group. My advisors are Patrícia ArriagaGuy Hoffman, and Ana Paiva.
