Short Bio

Dr. 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 Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna. His research interests include many aspects related to the development of robots able to interact with unstructured environments and to cooperate with humans. He is particularly active in the field of design and control of tendon actuated robots, of anthropomorphic hands for service robotics and grippers for both industrial and underwater applications, on the design, modelling and control of robots with variable stiffness joints, the design of compliant structures for robotics applications, on the development of innovative actuation systems based on the twisted string concept and electro-active polymers, on the development of compact and cheap position and force sensors based on optoelectronic technology and on the development of real-time systems for control applications.
