About Me: 

Michela Aquilano (M’04) was born in San Giovanni Rotondo (FG), Italy in 1980. She received the Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering at University "Campus Bio-Medico" of Rome on November 2004 and received the PhD in Biorobotics Science and Engineering from the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and IMT Advanced Studies in July 2008. Currently she is a post-doc at the Assistive Robotics Lab of the BioRobotics Institute and her research fields are the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) and Service Robotics. She is working on several national and European projects managing the analysis of the design requirements of technologies and services and the experimentation and evaluation of ICT and robotic technologies according to the usability and acceptability criteria, and supporting the project management.
