Short profile: 

Daniele Caligiore received a Master Degree in Electronics Engineering in 2003 at the Universita' degli Studi di Catania (Italy) and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2011 at the Universita' Campus Bio-Medico di Roma (Italy). During his PhD he was visiting scholar at the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems and at the School of Psychology (University of Plymouth, UK) to collaborate with Prof. Angelo Cangelosi and with Prof. Rob Ellis, and at Embodied Cognition Lab (Universita' di Bologna, Italy) to collaborate with Prof. Anna M. Borghi. His research interests include motor development, system-level computational modeling, computational models of brain diseases, developmental robotics. Recently, he was guest-editor for a consensus paper of the journal ‘The Cerebellum’ titled ‘Towards a systems-level view of cerebellar function: the interplay between cerebellum, basal ganglia and cortex’.
