Nuno Ferreira Duarte
I'm currently a Ph.D. student in a Joint-Degree between Instituto Superior Técnico (IST-Lisbon) and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) advised by Professor José Santos-Victor and Professor Aude Billard.
I recevied an M.Sc from the University of Lisbon, Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST-Lisbon), Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR), advised by Professor Pedro U. Lima.
My work focuses on human action understanding from neurological, psychological, and physiological behaviour. The importance non-verbal communication behaviour has on decoding human action intention. Using non-verbal cues as a communication language between humans and robots with the goal of having robots that understand actions and are understood by humans.
I have previously interned at California Institute of Technology (Caltech SURF Program) under the supervision of Professor Richard Murray.
