Carlo D'Eramo is a postdoctoral researcher in the Intelligent Autonomous Systems group working on Reinforcement Learning. Carlo joined the lab in April 2019 after receiving his Ph.D. in Information Technology from Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) in February 2019.

During several years of research, Carlo gained extensive experience in RL and provided key methodological advances in several related topics. He has made important and well-recognized contributions to uncertainty quantification and exploitation in RL, multi-task and curriculum RL, skill decomposition, residual learning, and planning. Moreover, he is the developer of MushroomRL, a widely accepted RL library for simplifying the implementation of RL experiments. The work of Carlo has been broadly published in top ML and Robotics conferences, e.g., ICML, NeurIPS, AAAI, ICLR, ICRA, RSS, and journals, e.g., JMLR, Frontiers in Robotics and AI.

He is currently conducting research revolving around the problem of how agents can efficiently acquire expert skills that account for the complexity of the real world. To answer this question, he is investigating lightweight methods to obtain adaptive autonomous agents, focusing on several RL topics including multi-task, curriculum, adversarial, options, and multi-agent RL.

Prior to his Ph.D. thesis, in 2015 he was awarded a double MSc in Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Milano and University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and in 2011 a BSc in Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.
