I am doing research in Robotics and Biomedical Engineering in collaboration with labs in Japan, Canada, Switzerland and USA. My main interest is in Human-machine Interaction.
My goal? To develop interfaces enabling humans to feel and (tele)operate in environments non-directly accessible to their senses (i.e. in the micro and nanoworlds), and robotic devices to assist humans in their actions rather than to replace them. I am also using robotic tools to investigate the neuro-mechanical control of the human arm.
If you are interested to take part to this research, if you have an idea
of a mechatronic device or a human-machine interface, please contact me. It always is possible
to find a solution for exceptional students and ideas. Open
