Social profiles



Mariacarla Memeo is a Biomedical Engineer with a specialization in Electronics. She received her PhD in Bioengineering and Robotics at University of Genoa in 2017 with a thesis titled “Interactive and effective representation of digital content through touch using local tactile feedback”. The main aim was to produce and analyze the amount and quality of information to be delivered through touch, in a non-visual scenario, for guidance and education purposes.

Currently, she works in the Cognition, Motion and Neuroscience Unit  (C’MoN) at Italian Institute of Technology , Genoa. The focus of her work is on the extraction of significant biomechanical features involved in the recognition of human intentions and on the realization of experimental naturalistic scenarios, i.e. environments with a limited number of restrictions that could be considered ecological and realistic. To achieve those aims, her current approach is to integrate real-time analysis (kinematic and behavioral variables) with event-relate synchronization of different measurement systems (motion capture, EMG and TMS).
