Team member’s description

Marco Imperoli: Marco is a second year Ph.D. student at Sapienza University of Rome. In 2015 he received the Master degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Engineering. His research is mainly focused on active perception problems in the context of object recognition and accurate 3D objects pose estimation.

 

Daniele Evangelista: Daniele is currently attending the second year of the Master degree in Articial Intelligence and Robotics at Sapienza University, in Rome. In October 2014 he got the bachelor degree in Informatics and Telecommunications engineering at University of Cassino. He is also the cofounder and CEO of alibabyte software house S.r.l.s., an italian company mainly focused on web, desktop and mobile software development. His main interests are in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in robotics applications.

 

Matteo Russo: Matteo is a PhD student in LARM, at University of Cassino. In September 2015 he got his M.Sc. (110/110 cum laude) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cassino, after spending 6 months at RWTH Aachen to develop his Master Thesis about robotic manipulators. Mechanism synthesis and analysis for robotics, industrial robots and fast prototyping are among his areas of interest.

 

Wilson Villa: Wilson is a Master student of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at la Sapienza, University of Rome. He received the Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering at la Sapienza in 2013. He is mainly interested in robotics, artificial intelligence and 3D printing solutions, in fact he is one of the developer of the project Homegrown RC.

 

Luca Monorchio: Luca is a Master student of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at la Sapienza, University of Rome. He received the Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering at Università degli studi di RomaTre in 2014. He is mainly interested in navigation and localization on mobile robotics, artificial intelligence and adaptive algorithms.

 

Francesco Chichi: Francesco is a Master student of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at la Sapienza, University of Rome. He received the Bachelor Degree in Computer Science at la Sapienza in 2016. His main interests are in Artificial Intelligence in robotics applications and autonomous robotics.

 

Former member’s description

Roberto Capobianco: Roberto received the Master Degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics from the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering (DIAG) of Sapienza University of Rome. During his Master’s Thesis he worked in the field of Semantic Mapping, publishing a conference paper and a workshop paper on the same topic. After graduating at M.Sc. (110/110 cum laude) and successfully completing the Excellence Program. After graduating, he started his Ph.D. program on November 01, 2013 at the same University. His areas of interest include robot learning, industrial and mobile robotics, and computer vision.

 

Jacopo Serafin: Jacopo obtained the Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics from the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering (DIAG) of Sapienza University of Rome in March 2013. Right after graduating at M.Sc.(110/110 cum laude) he has been involved in the ROVINA European project where he actually work as responsible for the 3D mapping. In November 2013 he started the Ph.D. program in engineering in computer science. His areas of interest include mobile robotics, computer vision, acquisition of 3D models / maps, SLAM and least-squares estimation problems.

 

Valerio Sanelli: Valerio is a Master student of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at la Sapienza, University of Rome. He received the Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering at la Sapienza in 2013. He is mainly focused on Artificial Intelligence, with particular emphasis on Robot Learning, Automated Reasoning and Vision systems.
