I'm Assistant Professor at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, where I teach Robot Mechanics, and Associate Researcher at the Rolls-Royce UTC, University of Nottingham, where I work on inspection and maintenance robotics. 

My research focuses on novel robot designs, developing enabling technologies for challenging tasks in industry and healthcare. My interests include design optimisation and continuum, tendon-driven, and parallel robots.
