Hey there! Welcome to my website. I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on Soft Wearable Robotics within the Harvard Biodesign Lab at Harvard University.
My main research interest is to develop cutting edge technology in the domain of wearable robotics for functional movement assistance, either by using rigid or soft robotic solutions. Wearable robotics is a real challenge but it is undeniably going to play a role in our future. Robots that can help and assist people, reduce injuries, improve recovery during rehabilitation, monitor body parameters and diagnose potential issues, compensate physical disability in an efficient way, or even "just" assist during fatiguing everyday tasks at home: make life easier!
There are several aspects of the Human-Robot Interaction still to address (e.g. complex mechanical coupling with the human body) but I like to focus my effort and competences on (1) how to smartly share the control of the body between the human user and the robot, (2) how to detect and anticipate the user intentions of movement, (3) how to adapt the robot initiative to the different applications and contexts.
As any engineer, I'm very interested in solutions that can actually have an impact on the life of real people, translating out of the academic environment. Themes like cost-efficiency (for example through underactuation and minimal amount of sensors), robustness (validation in unconstrained environments and under unsupervised behavior by the end-user), proven usefulness (investigate the effects of a control strategy but also how to properly assess these effects) are all among the priorities of my research.
