Ph.D. Student

About Me: 

I received the B.S degree in Biomedical Engineering, in 2014, and the M.S. degree in Bioengineering curriculum Neuroengineering & Bio-ICT (110 cum laude and DS), in 2016, from the Department of Computer Science, Bioengineering, Robotics and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS) in University of Genoa, Italy. I worked as Research Assistant at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in the Translational Neural Engineering Lab (TNE), Lausanne, Switzerland for 1 year. I developed and tested a bidirectional prosthesis control system for upper limb amputees taking part in the EPIONE, NEMESIS and NEBIAS projects.

In October 2016, I got the position of Ph.D student at the Institute of Biorobotics, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy.

My research interests are in neuroengineering and computational models: neuroprostheses in animal and human models for the peripheral stimulation of the nervous system in order to understand the neural control of movement, prostheses control and the sensory feedback in amputees.
