I have always been fascinated by the complex functioning of the human body. I believe that robotics, in its clumsy attempt to emulate it, has a great potential to both increases our quality of life and deepen the understanding of how we, human beings, function.
I studied biomedical engineering in Pisa, neurotechnology in London, and complete a PhD in mechanical engineering, in Singapore. I am now a researcher at the Sensory-Motor Systems Lab (SMS) at ETH Zurich, working on the development and validation of soft, lightweight wearable robots to support people with mobility disorders in their daily lives.
