About Me

Chiara is an Assistant Professor in the Robotics and Mechatronics (RaM) group at the EEMCS Faculty of the University of Twente. She is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters. In 2021, She was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship for her project Flyflic. She received, from the University of Pisa, her Ph.D. in Information Engineering in 2021 with a thesis in Physically Interacting Robotics for Logistic Applications; from the same institution, she received her MSc in Robotics and Automation Engineering with honors in 2017, and her BSc in Bioengineering in 2014. She was at LAAS-CNRS from November 2017 to May 2018 and a visiting Ph.D. student at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) from November 2019 to May 2020. Her research interests include aerial robotic manipulation and environmental robotics.
