Giammarco joined the ORI in 2022 as a DPhil Student at Green Templeton College and is supervised by Prof. Perla Maiolino in the Soft Robotics Lab. He has got both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as a Mechanical Engineer at the University of Calabria (Italy). For his Master’s thesis, he did a six-month internship at Siemens Industry Software NV, in Leuven (Belgium), working on the combination of machine learning algorithms for vehicle dynamics performance assessment and design features optimization. From March to September 2022 he was a research fellow at the University of Calabria involved in shape memory alloys numerical modelling and the design of mechatronic solutions for underwater coring operations.
His current research at the ORI focuses on multimodal feedback to properly control the robot in the execution of tasks in unstructured environments.
In his leisure time, Giammarco plays the electric guitar and enjoys rowing with the college club.
