Fabio is a research associate in the Mechatronics in Medicine lab, where he is currently developing new technologies and workflows for computer-assisted orthopaedic surgery. His research is funded by INNOVATE UK and focuses on translational medicine, with the objective of bringing the power of advanced digital and robotic technologies into the operating room.

Fabio has very diverse interests and background, spanning from robotics and bioengineering to psychophysics and neuroscience. He is passionate about multidisciplinary research and his goal is to create new assistive, rehabilitative, and medical technology that can truly empower individuals and improve their quality of life.


Fabio holds a B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering (2010), a M.Sc. in Bioengineering (2012), and a PhD in Bioengineering and Robotics (2017), all from the University of Genoa, Italy.

Before joining Imperial College, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences department of the Italian Institute of Technology, where his research focused on the use of haptic technology for psychophysics and rehabilitation.
