I am passionate about human neuromechanics and motor control. In particular, I am interested in understanding how the morphology of the human body facilitates the control action of the nervous system, and how to implement this knowledge into muscle driven models of human locomotion.
I completed my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano, and then went on to do my M.Sc. in Biomechanical Design at TU Delft. For my thesis, I designed an algorithm to control a lower limb exoskeleton through the arm swing, in collaboration with the Biomechanics group at the University of Twente. Currently, I am working to design a muscle-driven model of human running, a joint project with the Motor Control Modelling group, which is led by Daniel Häufle at The Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research in Tübingen.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, practising sports and playing games, especially while sharing a refreshing beer or energising cup of coffee with friends. Feel free to contact me by email for anything related to my studies (or not).

Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
