More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

I am an Italian biomedical engineer, with a passion for electronics and robotics. I lived both in the United States and Hong Kong, immersing myself in a multi-cultural environment to create global connections.

In 2017 I started my first entrepreneurial venture, Pluteus S.r.l.s, a Milan based startup aimed at facilitating sharing objects between students, lowering the cost of ownership.

In 2018 I co-founded Sparthan, an Open Source project between HKUST and U.C. Berkeley. Our goal is to provide affordable and functional 3D printed prosthetic hands for children.

In 2019 I completed my master degree at U.C. Berkeley, focusing on prosthetic devices and brain to machine interfaces, and I am now working on embedded software for medical devices.
