About

Edoardo Sinibaldi received a BSc/MSc in Aerospace Engineering (with Honors) from the University of Pisa (Italy) in 2002, after an internship period at Rolls-Royce plc (Derby, UK) during which he studied computational geometry methods for air-breathing engines applications. In 2006 he obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematics for Technology and Industry (with Honors) from the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, where he developed numerical methods for computational fluid dynamics, with application to cavitating flows in liquid propellant rocket engines. Then he moved to Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa (The BioRobotics Institute), holding a post-doctoral position until October 2009. During the period, he was strongly involved in competitive fundraising and project technical management (national and European projects in the ICT and MNP areas).

He is with the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) since November 2009, formerly as Senior Post-Doc then Researcher at the IIT Center for Micro-BioRobotics. Since January 2019 he holds a permanent position as Chief Technician. His research activity bridges modeling (at large, and in particular for biomedical applications), model-based design (in particular for flexible tools) and bioinspired soft robotics (at large, and in particular bioinspired actuation).

Since 2017 he also holds two national scientific qualifications as Associate Professor, namely for Bioengineering and Applied Mechanics.
