Bio sketch
I received the Ph.D. in Control Engineering in 1992 from Sapienza University of Rome. In 1990-1991 I was Visiting Scholar at the Center for Robotic Systems of the University of California at Santa Barbara. In 1994 I joined the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica, Automatica e Gestionale (formerly known as Dipartimento di Informatica e Sistemistica) of Sapienza University of Rome, where I currently am a Full Professor of Automatic Control and Robotics. I am also the coordinator of the DIAG Robotics Lab. In the past, I have held adjoint teaching positions at various italian universities, including the University of Siena in 1992-93, the University of Cassino in 1997-98 and the University of Roma Tre since 2002. I have served on many editorial boards and program committees. In particular, I have been firstAssociate Editor (2001-2005) and then Editor (2009-2013) of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics. I have also been Organization Chair for the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation which took place in Rome.
