Past experience: 
Prior to joining UoL, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham (UoB). I worked with Prof. Rustam Stolkin and Prof.  Ales Leonardis. I supervised a few PhD students in UoB. One of them started a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Surrey, UK.   

From October 2013 until September 2014 I was at JHU and visited Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics at Johns Hopkins University, LCSR. I worked with Prof. G. Hager.

I was with Politecnico di Milano as a PhD student since October 2011 through May 2015. I am a member of MEchatronics and Robotics Laboratory for INovation (MERLIN) at Dipartimento di Electronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) of Politecnico di Milano, under supervision and consultation of Professors L. BaschettaP. Rocco and Marcello Restelli
