About

Davide Esposito is a PhD student in bioengineering and robotics at Università di Genova (UNIGE) and Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), under the guidance of Monica Gori. Davide's research investigates how the brain uses head and trunk movements, internal representations and audiovisual perception to estimate one's heading. To this aim, he develops new assessment and training tools in virtual reality. He earned his BSc in bioengineering from the Politecnico di Torino and his MSc in bionics engineering from Università di Pisa and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. He is currently a member of the Unit for Visually Impaired People (U-VIP), where his main research is carried out. He is also a member of the ANTARES joint lab, a partnership between U-VIP and UNIGE's psychiatry section to create new psychiatric treatments based on the sensori-motor system, where he acts as technological coordinator.
