  • Bio: I am currently a post-doc researcher at Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR). I have obtained a PhD in microrobotics from Sorbonne University in 2020. I hold a Masters in Mechatronics Engineering for Health from Pierre and Marie Curie University in France, and a Masters in Ingeneria dell’Automazione Industriale with honors from the Università Degli Studi di Brescia in Italia. My current research focuses on the design and production of mobile microrobots for biomedical applications, and on innovative optical systems for the manipulation and characterization of cells. I am also part of the “Young Doctor” maturation program of SATT Lutech to promote my thesis results and define an optimal technology transfer strategy.
