About lorenzo.masia
Real Name:
Lorenzo Masia
Lorenzo Masia graduated in Mechanical Engineering at “Sapienza” University of Rome with Biomedical Curriculum in 2003, and in 2007 he accomplished his PhD in “Mechanical Measurement for Engineering” at the University of Padua with the Thesis “Design and Characterization of a Modular Robot for Hand Rehabilitation”. During his PhD he was visiting student at the Mechanical Engineering Dept. of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (from Jan- 2005 to Dec 2006) working at the Newman Lab for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation. Under the supervision of Dr. Hermano Igo Krebs and Prof. Neville Hogan, he designed the first prototype of InMotion Hand Robot for hand motor restoration, a modular device now commercialized by Interactive Motion Technology Inc.(Cambridge, MA).
He was a Team-Leader at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) leading the Motor Learning and Rehabilitation Laboratory of the Robotics Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department. His research is mainly focused on design & development of novel mechatronic devices for rehabilitation and implementation of control strategies for human robot interaction.
During the conference IEEE ICORR 2011 on Rehabilitation Robotics, he received the Best Paper Award, presenting a modular mechatronic device for fast estimation of end-point stiffness.
He is currently (since August 2013) an Assistant Professor at the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore.
