Child-Robot Interaction, Disability and Psychology: namely I use different robots and interactive technologies like PARO and IROMEC to allow children with different levels of disability to engage via play activities.
Expertise Contributions*
During my PhD and my post-doc I gained an extensive experience in defining and carrying out of field trials with children with disability in interaction with interactive technologies and robots via play activities. My research can help LUDI to define what are the suitable tools and technologies to be used to enable children with disabilities to play.
