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 am currently an Associate Professor of Automatic Control and Robotics. I am also the coordinator of the Robotics Laboratory. 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. Among other things, I have been Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics from 2001 to 2005 and the Organization Chair for the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation. From 2009 to 2013 I have been Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics.
