What I do

Giulia Bassani is a PhD student at the Laboratory of Perceptual Robotics (PERCRO), part of the Institute of Communication Information and Perception Technologies (TECIP) of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna located in Pisa, Italy.

She enrolled in the academic year 2013-14 in the International PhD in Emerging Digital Technologies with a scholarship supported by Telecom Italia S.p.A., the main Italian ICT group, to develop the ‘Zero-power wearable motion tracking’ project.

She currently studies zero-power technologies with a focus on human energy sources and during the last year she contributed to the Zero-Power EU ICT inducement prize project led by Nesta and in collaboration with Science Practice and Burson-Marsteller.


Prior to Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Giulia studied at the University of Pisa and has an MSc in Biomedical Engineering after a period abroad at the Vanderbilt University in Nashville (USA) to develop her thesis project on ‘Real-time pose detection for medical magnetic devices’.

Once out of the office, she likes to spend her time surfing and travelling around to find some good waves.
