Bio sketch
I received the Ph.D. in Control Engineering in 1992 from Sapienza University of Rome. In 1994 I joined the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering (DIAG) of the same university, where I am currently a Full Professor of Automatic Control and Robotics. I am also the director of the DIAG Robotics Lab. I have held teaching positions at various italian universities, including the University of Siena, of Cassino and of Roma Tre, and I have been Visiting Scholar at the University of California at Santa Barbara. I am a Fellow of the IEEE.

I have been Associate Editor (2001-2005) and Senior Editor (2009 to 2014) of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics. I have served on the Program Committee of several international conferences, including the European Control Conference, the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), the IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots, Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS), and many others.
I have also been Organization Chair for the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation which took place in Rome. From 2007 to 2011 I have been on the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. In 2008 and 2009 I have served as Area Chair for the RSS conference series. From 2014 to 2016 I have been Editor of the Conference Paper Review Board of the IROS Conference series.

Research interests
My research interests are in control and robotics, and in particular: humanoid robots; UAVs; nonholonomic mobile robots; visual motion control; multi-robot systems; sensor-based map building, localization and navigation; remote control and laboratories; motion planning in the presence of obstacles; learning control in robotic systems; planning and control for kinematically redundant robots; assistive robotics. In these areas I have published 2 books and over 230 papers in international journals and conferences. A description of some recent research is here.
