About Me: 

I was born in 1978 in Perugia (Italy). I received the University Degree (Laurea) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Perugia (Italy) in 2004 and the Ph.D. in Robotics from University of Genova (Italy) in 2008. In December 2008 I received the diploma for the Executive Master in Management of Innovation and Services at SIAF (Volterra, Pisa).
I'm Post-Doc research scientist at Biorobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa where I was involved in EU funded and Italian research projects. My research interests are in the fields of tactile sensors, artificial sensing skin, biomechatronics, human-machine interfaces. I developed optoelectronic pressure sensors to be used as human-machine interfaces.
Currently I cover a Post-doc Fellow position at the BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA) in Pisa assisting the Industrial Research and Development (IRD) Group of SSSA leaded by Maria Chiara Carrozza and Stefano Roccella.
