About

PhD in New Automobile Technologies, University of Zaragoza (2008). He worked as a researcher in the Area of Transports and in the Area of Mechanics of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Zaragoza. In 2004 he was guest professor at the “ENSI de Bourges”. From 2006 he is working at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and he is currently the leader of the exoskeletons group at the department of Advanced Robotics (ADVR).

His principal research field is industrial exoskeletons and soft wearable assistive devices. Previous research experience includes motion bases, driving simulators, teleoperation, telepresence, teleexistence, virtual reality, GPGPU computing and medical robotics.

He has participated in 6 European Projects, being the coordinator of the XoSoft EU Project, and in more than 10 international and national projects, including the management of a recent project funded by the Italian Workers Compensation Authority (INAIL). He has over 50 international publications. He has received two awards in 2005 for two different research works about teleoperation and driving simulators, and in 2016 at the CLAWAR2016 conference for his work related with the Robo-Mate EU Project.
