I am a Lecturer in Engineering at the University of Sussex and have been a professional engineer in Italy since 2013. I obtained my PhD from the Nanyang Technological University in 2018, and my Laurea Magistrale (MSc) and Laurea (BSc) in Biomedical Engineering from the Università Campus Biomedico di Roma in 2012 and 2009, respectively.  I was also a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh until June 2022, where I worked on motor control and bioinspired interaction control for dexterous robotics. I have also been a Research Associate at the Rehabilitation Research Institute of Singapore at the Nanyang Technological University, where my activity was focused on rehabilitation robotics and locomotion motor control. Furthermore, I have also been a consultant for about one year between his master’s and PhD degrees.
