About Me: 

Lorenzo Vannucci is PhD student in BioRobotics at The BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa. He obtained his M.Sc. in Computer Science at the university of Pisa in 2014 (110/110 cum laude) with a thesis entitled "An adaptive neuro-controller for head-stabilized visual pursuit in a humanoid robot". His current research activity involves the development of biologically inspired adaptive and predictive control mechanisms for humanoid robots.
