His research focusses on the design and manufacturing of bioinspired soft robotic systems that can intelligently interact with the environment at different scales thanks to their mechanical properties. This Embodied Intelligence is implemented via multifunctional materials and structures with distributed actuation, sensing, control and energy.

Edoardo Milana studied mechanical engineering and nanotechnology at Sapienza University of Rome. In 2020 he obtained his Ph.D. in engineering science at KU Leuven, with his research on artificial cilia and soft robotics. In 2019, he was a visiting researcher at the University of Milan, working on electroactive polymers. He then worked as postdoctoral researcher at the DLR – German Aerospace Center and the University of Freiburg. Currently, he is Assistant Professor in Soft Machines at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) of the University of Freiburg.
