I'm a Chancellor's Fellow in Design Informatics, School of Design at the University of Edinburgh.
My research is aimed at better understanding the social impact of Artificial Intelligence technologies, with a particular focus on AI applications in the creative sector.
I integrate theoretical analysis with empirical methods to investigate public attitudes of reception of the adoption of AI in society.
I obtained a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Nottingham (2018). Alongside my studies in Philosophy, I graduated with a diploma in piano at the Conservatorio G.B. Martini, Bologna, Italy (2014).
I'm a Research affiliate at the Edinburgh Futures Institute and Centre for Technomoral Futures, University of Edinburgh
I am interested in exploring how humans can be more creative through the use of state-of-the-art AI technology.
The Role of Embodiment
I address the question of what impact does embodiment have on the creation and reception of artefacts. Is embodiment an ingredient that an agent needs to possess in order to be creative?
Human and Artificial Agents
How can human agents successfully interact with Artificial Intelligence systems? How do we manage to trade off between sense of agency, control, and reliance on the system?
