Claudia Latella received her BEng in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Genova (Italy) in March 2009.

She got the MEng in Bioengineering (110/110, cum laude) in March 2011 at the University of Genova, with an experimental mechanical thesis carried out at DynaMat Laboratories of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI), Lugano, dealing with the mechanical tensile behavior of bovine bones.

After a working period, she came back to the academic environment starting her Ph.D in November 2014 at the Italian Institute of Technology where she obtained the Ph.D title in March 2018 with a thesis  focussed on simultaneous multimodal sensor fusion for motion and force capture estimation for human movements.  Since then, she is a Post Doc researcher in the Dynamic Interaction Control (DIC) lab, at IIT.
