DEIB, Politecnico di Milano

Brief Bio
Giuseppina C. Gini, after the “Laurea” degree in Physics from the University of Milano (Italy), in 1972 joined Politecnico di Milano (Italy) as assistant professor. She had various appointments at the hand-eye robotics project at SAIL, and at the NMR Laboratory of the Stanford University (CA, USA). Since 1987, as Associate Professor at the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering (DEIB) of Politecnico di Milano, she has been responsible for the Robotics and Cognitive Robotics courses in the graduate school, member of the Ph.D. board for Information Engineering, and fellow of ASP, the graduate school of excellence of Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino. Her research themes are at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence both symbolic and neural. She has been responsible for the design and implementation of advanced robot languages, simulators, planners, and of bioinspired models of walking, grasping, vision, memory, and robot learning. She has been the principal investigator in more than 30 European, NATO, bilateral and national research projects. She also served as expert and reviewer for various European research programs and working groups, was a National Delegate in the EU COST Action on Knowledge Exploration in Science and Technology, and member of the European Commission assigning the Giralt PhD Award for extraordinary contributions in robotics.
