At first it was a degree in Physics but after establishing a service company for blind people technologies and a researcher working experience for the National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM) I moved to Neuroscience for my PhD. I've studied electrical neuronal activity and interfaced for the first a time neurons with diamonds to uncover the possibility to fabricate transparent bio-sensors. 

Right now I'm Researcher at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) head of the Artificial Physiology Lab, where we study hand movements and force analysis by surface electromyographic (sEMG) signals detected from forearm muscles. The team is developing a new generation of Electromyographic devices to pilot the future soft exoskeleton, code name HExEC.
