Edoardo Sotgiu

Research Engineer

Integrated Micro and Nanotechnologies

Edoardo Sotgiu is currently a Researcher Engineer in the group of Integrated Micro and Nanotechnologies (IMiNa) at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Braga (Portugal), and his research focuses on the field of haptics, including tactile sensors and actuators, and acoustics. He is currently involved in developing wearable devices for neuromuscular rehabilitation based on force-myography and developing force/pressure sensors for the automotive industry. In recent years, he was also involved in developing MEMS speakers, a flexible tactile sensor array for surface identification and a pneumatic-based tactile feedback array for VR simulation.

He received an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pisa in 2003, and he is currently attending the PhD Doctoral Program in Electronics and Computer Engineering (PDEEC) on MEMS-based ultrasonic mid-air actuators. In the past, he worked at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, where he got experience on different topics like control of parallel kinematics haptic interfaces, bilateral teleoperation systems, vibrotactile devices for psychophysics studies, exoskeletal robotic devices and virtual reality applications for rehabilitation therapy.
