I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II where I obtained a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in January 2013 and March 2015, respectively.
After a one year collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in 2016 (dept. of Advanced Robotics), I came back to Naples in 2017 and started a Ph.D. program in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (with focus on robotics and control) under the supervision of Prof. Bruno Siciliano.
During my Ph.D. I spent two short periods as visiting student at IRISA, INRIA Rennes (Equipe de Recherche Lagadic and Rainbow team) from November to December 2017 and from October to December 2018, respectively. I have visited the department of Mechanical Engineering at University of California Santa Barbara from June to December 2019.
My research interests include: shared control, robotic teleoperation, port-Hamiltonian modelling, passivity-based control, soft robotics, grasping and manipulation.
I am passionate about robotics and computer science. You can downoald my short cv here.
