Passionate and result-oriented Mechanical Engineer, I am working at Rehab Technologies to build innovative lower limb prostheses with a high level of technology and strongly focused on the needs of the patients.
The group I am leading, the HyperLeg team, is designing two prototypes of active knee prostheses, based on hydraulic and electric technologies, and one micro controlled ankle prosthesis, able to make the step more comfortable and safer for the user.
During my previous experience I worked in the Twin - Lower Limb Exoskeleton team (Rehab Technologies), designing the second revision of the device, and leading the mechanical group of the project.
Moreover, as a mechanical technologist, I designed the hand prosthesis Hannes (Rehab Technologies), with a specific focus on the fingers and the wrist.
Before the IIT experience, I worked in the Italian Institute of Welding (IIS) as a structural engineer, specialized in welded components and metals study.
I got my Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Genoa, with a stage experience at the CERN scientific center.
Skills: components design, production management, design supervision, project management, rehabilitation robotics, technology transfer
