Mario Selvaggio

Ph.D. Candidate

I am a Ph.D. candidate at University of Naples Federico II, department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, PRISMA Lab affiliated to the ICAROS center.

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 PhD program in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Bruno Siciliano.

During my PhD I spent one month as visiting scholar at IRISA, INRIA Rennes (Equipe de Recherche Lagadic) from November to December 2017.

My research interests include: shared control, robotic teleoperation, port-Hamiltonian modelling, passivity-based control, grasping and manipulation.

I am passionate about robotics and computer science. You can downoald my short cv here.
