In the A.A. 2017/2018, she obtained the MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Università Politecnica delle Marche discussing the thesis ‘ Development and validation of a parametric multibody model of a vehicle for implementation in a driving simulator’. From July 2018 to February 2019, she spent a period abroad at Siemens PLM Software, Belgium, in the automotive research department.

Since 2019, she is Research Fellow at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (DIISM).

From January 2022 to June 2022, she worked with the Joanneum Research Institute in Austria as a visiting scientist.

From March 2023, Cecilia Scoccia obtained her PhD degree and joined DIISM as a Research Fellow on 1 May of the same year.



Her research interests include collaborative robotics and human-robot collaboration, mechatronics, and biomechanics.
