Dr Alessandro Del Vecchio is a research associate at Department of BioengineeringImperial College London. He completed his PhD in Rome at the University of Rome "Foro Italico" with summa cum laude in the neural control of muscles. He spent part of his PhD (Doctor Europaeus) at the Neurorehabilitation Institute, Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience at the Medical University of Göttingen, Germany. 

Six months before finishing his PhD (July 2017), he joined the Neuromechanics and Rehabilitation Technology Group at the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, where he carries out research on motor neurons, neuromechanics, and biosignal processing. 

Dr Del Vecchio is interested in the study of the neuromuscular function in humans and other mammals and the development of neurotechnologies for man-machine interfaces.
