Giorgio Grioli

Visiting Scientist
Soft Robotics for Human Cooperation and Rehabilitation
Research center

Giorgio Grioli is currently a Researcher at the Italian Institute of
Technology, where he investigates the design, modelling and control of
soft robotic systems and intelligent machines inspired by natural
systems and the most modern and promising technologies. He implements
these methods to develop systems for human-centred applications, ranging
 from collaborative industrial robotics to prosthetics.
He received his PhD in Robotics, Automation and Engineering from
Università di Pisa in 2011, with a dissertation on the identification
for control of Variable Impedance Actuators. He authored more than 80
among journal and conference articles and book chapters (2200 citations,
 h-index 20) in the fields of soft robotic actuation, robot hand design
and haptics. He is reported as inventor in 6 between patent and patent
applications. He contributed to the development of several robotic
systems and to the founding of a spin-off company. He has being serving
as Associate Editor for the ICRA and ICORR conferences (since 2015) and
as editor the MDPI Actuators journal. Over the years he supervised the
development of more than 20 Master Degree Theses in the degrees of
Automation Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. He also supervised
several Bachelor degree theses and student projects for the course of
Robotics. He tutored 2 and is currently tutoring 6 PhD students in the
Information Engineering Ph.D. course of Università di Pisa.
