Professor Massimiliano Zecca is Chair of Healthcare Technology at Loughborough University, UK, in the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering (EESE), where he leads the Wearable BioRobotics research group. He is also a key member of NCSEM-EM, the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine in the East Midlands, and of the NIHR Leicester-Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity Biomedical Research Unit. Before joining Loughborough University he worked in Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, from 2003 to 2013, and in Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy, from 1999 to 2003. His main research interests are the observation and the analysis of the human being, which can be seen as an extreme and exquisite example of robotic system, and the quantification of their capabilities in high dexterous tasks: laparoscopic surgery, neurosurgery, gait, human-robot emotional and musical interaction, and so on.
