About me

Prof Manuel Giuliani is Professor in Embedded Cognitive AI for Robotics at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, University of the West of England, Bristol, and he is a Co-Director of the BRL. At BRL, he leads the ECHOS group (Embodied Cognition for Human RObot InteractionS). He received a Master of Arts in computational linguistics from Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich, a Master of Science, and a PhD in computer science from Technical University Munich.

Currently, he is Co-Investigator on the EPSRC-funded projects NCNR (National Centre for Nuclear Robotics), RNE (Robotics for Nuclear Environments), and DigiTOP (Digital Toolkit for Optimisation of Operators and Technology in Manufacturing Partnerships).

Manuel is part of the management team for the joint EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Autonomous and Robotic Systems: FARSCOPE. He is also UWE Programme Leader for the joint MSc Robotics programme between University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.

In the past, he worked on the European projects JAST (Joint Action Science and Technology), JAMES (Joint Action for Multimodal Embodied Social Systems), ReMeDi (Remote Medical Diagnostician), the Cluster of Excellence CoTeSys (Cognition for Technical Systems), and the Austrian Christian-Doppler-Laboratory “Contextual Interfaces”.

Before going to Bristol, Manuel worked at the Technical University of Munich, fortiss GmbH in Munich, and the Center for Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Salzburg, where he led the Human-Robot Interaction group.

Area of expertise

Dr. Manuel Giuliani's research interests include human-robot interaction, social robotics, robots for nuclear decommissioning, natural language processing, multimodal fusion, multimodal output generation, augmented and virtual reality interfaces, and embedded cognitive robot architectures.
