About

Christian Vassallo is one of the software engineers at Rehab Technologies Lab, an innovation lab co-funded by INAIL to develop new prostheses, exoskeleton and rehabilitation devices of high market potential in the healthcare sectors. He received his B.Sc. in Computer Engineering in 2011 from the University of Genoa, and a double-degree M.S. in Robotics Engineering in 2013 from the École centrale de Nantes. He concluded his Ph.D in Robotics Engineer (Humanoid Robots and Human Gait) in 2016 at Gepetto Team, one of the robotics group of the LAAS-CNRS lab in Toulouse, France. In July 2017 he joined the Italian Institute of Technology, starting as jr. software engineer on the Twin exoskeleton project, where currently roles as software team leader, having the chance of  managing a brilliant team composed by 4 engineers, with different academic backgrounds and expertise. The team is composed by Valentina Pericu (Robotics Eng.), Gaia Zinni (Mechatronics Eng.) and Matteo Zuccatti (Mechatronics Eng.).
