In October 2006 he received the B.S. Degree Summa Cum Laude in Biomedical Engineering from Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma with a Graduation Thesis entitled “Finite Element Analysis of an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Geometric Model Reconstructed form TAC: Biomechanical and Fluidodynamic Aspects”.

In December 2008 he received the M.S. Degree Summa Cum Laude in Biomedical Engineering from Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma. His Graduation Thesis was entitled “Effects of Force Control for Rehabilitation Robotic Systems on Human Motor Strategies”.

In March 2012 he received the Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma under the supervision of Prof. Eugenio Guglielmelli and Prof. Dino Accoto. PhD Thesis was entitled pHRI in Assistive and Rehabilitation Robots: Neural Constraints and Compliant Joints/Actuators Design". During his Ph.D. he spent a visiting period at the Biorobotics Laboratory (BioRob) of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) under the supervision of Prof. Auke Jan Ijspeert.

Currently Nevio Luigi Tagliamonte is a post-doctoral fellow in Biomedical Engineering at Università Campus Bio-Medico, Laboratory of Biomedical Robotics and Biomicrosystems.

His research activity is focused on the design and development of robotic devices for rehabilitation and assistance, with special attention to the issue of human-robot interaction optimization. His interest is in the design of robots coping with human natural motor strategies and producing useful emergent dynamic behaviors. Current work is focused on the control of a novel non-anthropomorphic wearable robot for gait assistance.

Scientific interests

  • Interaction control for robot-aided therapy and assistance
  • Mechatronic solutions for rehabilitation/assistive robotics
  • Compliant actuators
  • Physical human-robot interaction


European projects

  • Evryon FET project (FP7-ICT-2007-3-231451, The project was about the development of a novel methodology for the design of wearable robots, based on a evolutionary concurrent design of robot morphology and control. Personal contribution is in the development of compliant actuators for lower limbs wearable robots to optimize the dynamical interaction with the human body and on the robot control.
