External PhD candidate @AIROB

Assistive Intelligent Robotics Lab | AIROB Lab


Mr. Andrea Gigli is a research fellow at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Munich, since 2018. He became an external Ph.D. candidate at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität in 2021. Before that, he obtained a master’s degree in engineering in artificial intelligence and robotics at Sapienza University, Rome, Italy, in 2017. His research focuses on interactive myocontrol paradigms. This includes the design of algorithms for online machine learning (both supervised and unsupervised), and of human-machine interaction strategies.
