Edoardo Farnioli received the bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Florence, and the master degree in Automation Engineering at the University of Pisa. He received the Ph.D. degree in Automatics, Robotics and Bioengineering in 2015 at the University of Pisa with a thesis with title "Kineto-Static Methods for Whole-Body Robot Interactions". He is currently with the "Department of Advanced Robotics" (ADVR), Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Genova, Italia. His research interest mainly focuses on underactuated systems, including robotic hands and humanoid robots in multi multi-contact scenarios.
