I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Naples Federico II, department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, affiliated to PRISMA Lab and ICAROS, and co-founder at BeyondShape.
I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II where I obtained the Bachelor's and the Master's degree in January 2013 and March 2015, respectively.
After a one year internship 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, and visited the department of Mechanical Engineering at University of California Santa Barbara from June to December 2019.
My research interests include: shared control, robot teleoperation, passivity-based control, soft robotics, grasping and manipulation.
I am passionate about robotics and computer science. You can downoald my short cv here.
