Jacopo Zenzeri graduated at the University of Pavia in 2006 in Biomedical Engineering (magna cum laude), with a thesis on modeling of ferromagnetic shape memory alloys. In 2009 he took the Master Degree in Bioengineering, specialization in Neuroengineering (magna cum laude) at the University of Genoa, with a thesis on analysis and modeling of whole body movements. In 2013 he obtained the PhD in Robotics, Cognition and Interaction Technologies from the University of Genoa and Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) with a thesis on the problem of coordination of redundant degrees of freedom in humans and humanoids. As PhD student, he was involved in the EU funded HUMOUR project. Currently he is a Post Doctoral fellow at IIT-RBCS and he is working on the project RobotRehab. His role in the project is the design and implementation of the software for the Wristbot, an exoskeleton applied to the wrist with three degrees of freedom. He is also in charge of the integration of the hardware and the software of the device in the direction of transferring the technology to the market. His main research interests are in motor learning, rehabilitation robotics, haptics, neural control of movements and assistive technologies.
