He graduated in 2020 with his work entitled "Development of physical interfaces to promote kinematic compatibility for AGoRA lower-limb exoskeleton." Currently, he is a Ph.D. researcher at R&MM studying the Human-Robot Interaction and how the soft tissue is involved in this interaction


His primary research has focused on developing, improving, and assessing lower-limb exoskeletons to assist or enhance the user, using user-centered design to achieve a suitable robotic device, and qualitative and quantitative assessment to analyze the interaction, comfort, and safety of the user

Research Interests

Exoskeletons; Physical interfaces or braces; Qualitative/quantitative assessment
