Dr. João Silvério
Dr. João Silvério is a postdoctoral researcher with the Robot Learning and Interaction group since July 2019. His goal is to create new algorithms that allow robots to learn complex motor skills from humans. In his work he exploits probabilistic machine learning techniques in combination with classical robotics concepts, (optimal) control and, recently, some reinforcement learning. He usually experiments with uni- and bi-manual manipulation applications as well as physical collaboration/interaction with humans.
He received his PhD in robotics, Italian Institute of Technology/University of Genova (Italy) in April 2017. Previously he obtained a Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon, Portugal) in 2011.
