Andrea Ciullo is currently a Post-Doc Researcher at the Soft Robotics for Rehabilitation and Cooperation (SoftBots, P.I. Prof. Antonio Bicchi) laboratory at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa (Italy). He received his Ph.D. in Robotics from the Università di Pisa (Italy) in 2020, with the thesis title "Soft Robotic Technologies for a novel generation of Supernumerary Limbs". In 2019, he spent a period at the Bioengineering Department of the Imperial College of London, under the supervision of Prof. Dario Farina. During this period, he worked on the analysis of the effects of a supernumerary robotic hand observation therapy on severe acute stroke subject by using the high-density EMG (HD-EMG) signals. He received his Bachelor's and Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2013 and 2016 respectively.

His current research interests include design, assessment, and validation of supernumerary robotics limbs, rehabilitation and assistive robotics, human-robot collaboration, and industrial robotics.


During my research experience, I've been involved into the following projects:

  • European project H2020 SOPHIASocio-Physical Interaction Skills for Cooperative Human-Robot Systems in Agile Production (Principal Investigator: Dr. Arash Ajoudani).
  • ERC Starting Grant Ergo-LeanRethinking Human Ergonomics in Lean Manufacturing and Service Industry: Towards Adaptive Robots with Anticipatory Behavior (Principal Investigator: Dr. Arash Ajoudani).
  • ERC Synergy Grant Natural BionicSNatural Integration of Bionic Limbs via Spinal Interfacing (Principal Investigators: Prof. Dario Farina, Prof. Antonio Bicchi, and Dr. Oskar Aszmann).
  • European project H2020 SoftProSynergy-based Open-source Foundations and Technologies for Prosthetics and RehabilitatiOn (Principal Investigator: Prof. Antonio Bicchi).
