ABOUT

Maria Pozzi is a Postdoctoral Researcher in Robotics and Automation at the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Siena, Italy. She recently concluded a PhD program in Information Engineering conducted at the University of Siena and at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Genoa, Italy. She carries on her research in the Siena Robotics and Systems Lab (http://sirslab.diism.unisi.it/), studying the principles and mechanisms that regulate human and robotic grasping, with applications in human-robot collaboration. She is also working on educational robotics within the European project "INBOTS - Inclusive Robotics for a Better Society" (http://inbots.eu/).
