Bio

Danilo Bruno is a Senior Post Doc researcher in the Learning and Interaction group. His research interests are imitation and reinforcement learning applied to motion skills learning, trajectory reproduction and movement modelling. He only recently switched to this field, coming from Mathematical Physics.

He took his Ms.C. in Physics in 1999 and a Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2003 at the University of Genova, with a dissertation on constrained dynamical systems.

Since then, he held several post doc position at the Department of Mathematics of University of Genova. His research interests were focussed on constrained dynamical systems, mathematical methods in classical field theory and geometric control theory.
