About

Marianna Semprini got a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a MS in Bioengineering (Neuroengineering curriculum) both at the University of Genoa (Italy) in 2004 and 2007 respectively. In 2007 she was research fellow at Northwestern University (Chicago, IL, USA). In 2011 she received a PhD in Robotics, Neurosciences and Nanotechnologies from the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT). 

She is currently Clinical Research Team Manager at IIT-INAIL Rehab Technologies Lab of the Italian Institute of Technologies. Her current interests are  neurorehabilitation, neuroprostheses and neural control of movement.
