CV

Dr. Cesare Stefanini received his PhD degree from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy in Micro engineering. His core expertise is in the field of design and development of biorobotic systems, often connecting creativity and engineering. He mentored world-class PhD students and published more than 80 articles on high impact scientific journals and international conferences.

His international reputation is proved by his active roles in several European funded Projects as Coordinator and Project Leader. He has been a visiting researcher at Stanford University and the recipient of the Intuitive Surgical Inc. Research Grant. He collaborated with multi-national and international companies and he holds several patents on related technologies.
