Andrea Cimolato started his career in Human-Robot Interaction immediately after his M.Sc Degree in Bioengineering at the Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy, in 2015.
During his 2 years of studentship at the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Laboratory (IAS-Lab), Università degli Studi di Padova, he conducted his research into the field of Brain-Computer Interfaces and EMG-driven robots control. He also worked in collaboration with the Pediatric Hospital of Padova, for the first application in Italy of “Robot-Therapy” during painful procedures.
Since 2017, he is pursuing a PhD in Bioengineering at Politecnico di Milano, Neuroengineering and Medical Robotics laboratory (NearLab), working in collaboration with Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Rehab Technologies Department, Genova, Italy.
The focus of his research is to develop a novel EMG-driven control strategy for the actuation of artificial lower-limb devices and its integration within robotic prosthesis and orthosis.
