Maurilio Di Cicco

I'm currently working as senior research scientist, leading Team Calibration, for nuTonomy (Singapore). I work mostly on sensors, taking good care of them and the data they produce. I am also taking care of parts of the simulation architecture and subsystems.


I got my BS in 2010 in Computer Engineering at Federico II University of Naples and MS in 2013 in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Sapienza University of Rome.

From early 2013 I have been a member of the Ro.Co.Co laboratory and I started my Ph.D program under the supervision of dr. Giorgio Grisetti. My Ph.D work was on unsupervised calibration methods for perception and motion on mobile robots

At the same time, I was involved in the Rovina Project (2013-2106) as research assistant. During Rovina we developed an autonomous robot capable of exploring harsh environments, in particular, catacombs.

I’ve spent 7 months (November 2015 – May 2016) at the G.R.A.S.P Lab (UPENN) working on indoor autonomous navigation for quadrotors.

I got my Ph.D. in February 2017, my thesis “Model learning for mobile robots” was mostly focused on methodologies to deal with autonomous calibration.

My other interests include artificial intelligence, computer graphics for simulations, and video games development.
