His research interests are related to robotic locomotion by means of hopping, walking and running. He studies the contribution of soft actuators, such as muscles and springs, to a higher stability and energy efficiency. His research topics also include morphological evolution of robots. His research output was recognized by one international award (AMAM2013), one interview with Discovery Channel, two IEEE Spectrum articles (here and here) and many online articles in different languages (ENG, FRA, ITA, GER, CHI, RUS). He has nine IEEE conference papers, a total of 14 international conferences, three published journal articles and an Erdos number of 5. He has volunteered as a referee for IEEE Transactions on Robotics, IEEE Intl. Conf. on Rehabilitation Robotics, IEEE Intl. Conf. on Intelligent Robots and Systems, and Intl. Foundation on Robotics Research. He is currently a Guest Editor on a Special Issue of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine.
