Ezequiel Di Paolo

Ezequiel Di Paolo is a full-time Research Professor working at Ikerbasque, the Basque Science Foundation (San Sebastián, Spain). He has a background in physics and nuclear engineering and a DPhil in computer science and artificial intelligence from the University of Sussex (UK). He was Reader in Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems at the University of Sussex and remains a member of the Sussex Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (CCNR). His interdisciplinary work on the enactive approach to life, mind, and society integrates insights from cognitive science, phenomenology, philosophy of mind, and dynamical systems modelling. His recent research focus is on enactive theories of sensorimotor dynamics, the sense of agency, intersubjectivity, and language. Other research interests include dynamical systems, adaptive behaviour in natural and artificial systems, biological modelling, complexity, evolutionary robotics, and philosophy of science. He is the author of over 150 peer-reviewed publications, has been involved as principal investigator in several international research projects, and is an active member of the editorial board of various journals.
