Prof. Claudio Castellini, Ph.D.

Claudio Castellini

I am a researcher in medical robotics, focussing on rehabilitation and assistive robotics, human-machine interfaces and interaction and applied machine learning. In 1998 I obtained a degree in Electronic (Biomedical) Engineerings from the University of Genoa, then in 2005 a Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence (Mathematical Logic) from the School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh. I then turned my attention to robotics for the disabled, and spent 4.5 years as a post-doctoral fellow at the Advanced Robotics Laboratory of the University of Genoa. In 2009 I landed at the German Aerospace Center where, as of now, I am senior researcher at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics.

In 2021 I have been appointed full professor of medical robotics at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Here, I happily lead the Institute of Medical Robotics.

As of now, I have (co)authored short of 120 scientific papers, I am involved in a few research projects and I have served, or am currently serving, for some international editorial boards and committees. For more information, please check my academic curriculum vitae, as well as my Europass cv.
