Silvia Taccola received her Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering (with honours) from the University of Pisa in July 2008. In April 2012, she obtained her Ph.D. in Innovative Technologies of Information and Communication Engineering and Robotics at the Biorobotics Institute of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna with a thesis entitled “Free‑standing functionalized nanofilms for biomedical applications”. Since July 2012 she holds a Post-Doc position at the Italian Institute of Technology, Center for Micro-BioRobotics@SSSA (Pontedera, Italy). Her current research interests include synthesis and characterization of micro/nano-structured materials for sensing and actuation and innovative transduction mechanisms by means of bio-inspiration paradigm.
