About Me: 

Federico Montagnani received the PhD degree in biorobotics from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in 2015.
He received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering, in 2007 and the M.S. degree in automotive engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy in 2011. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Biorobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy. From 2007 to 2008, he was a Research Engineer in the ARTS Lab of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy.
His interests include mechatronic design and biomechanical analysis in the field of upper limb prosthetics. He is a member of the IEEE.
