Bruno Scaglioni received his MSc in 2012 and Ph.D. in 2017 in Systems and Controls at Politecnico di Milano, with a thesis entitled “Newton-Euler approach to modelling and control of flexible manipulators”. After the Ph.D. he moved to the United Kingdom where he is now Research Fellow in Medical Robotics at the University of Leeds. His main research interests focus on modelling and control of robotic platforms for medical applications. In particular, he is interested in leveraging advanced control techniques and AI to improve the intelligence of medical devices, thus enhancing their dexterity, ease of use, safety and effectiveness. Dr. Scaglioni is currently responsible for the research on the DaVinci platform and Principal Investigator of an industrial grant promoted by Intuitive Surgical.
