Short Bio

Prof. Gianluca Palli received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in automation engineering from the University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, in 2003 and 2007, respectively. He was a Visiting Student at the Robotic Institute of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Munich, Germany, in 2006. He is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Bologna. His research interests include many aspects related to the development of robots able to interact with unstructured environments, deformable objects and to cooperate with humans. He coordinated the WIRES projects, which aim was to automatize the switchgears wiring process, and he is now the coordinator of the REMODEL H2020 project, aiming at the development of robotic technologies for the manipulation of complex deformable linear objects. He is active in the field of design and control of manipulation systems for deformable objects, anthropomorphic hands for service robotics and grippers for both industrial and service applications, on the modeling and control of robots with variable stiffness joints, on the development of innovative actuation and sensory systems.
