I'm a roboticist working at the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena. My favorite fictional robot is Wall-E, closely followed by Johnny 5 (I'm a child of the '80s).
I will move to Boston in October to work at MIT.
I spend most of my time doing research, which implies me staring at the void like the picture profile. If you do a web search for my name, "Andrea Censi" you can find my papers --- and you'll see that right now robotics is much more about formulas than hanging out with cute robots.
I grew up in from Rome, Italy (yes, "Andrea" is a male name in Italy) and I've been in Los Angeles for 6 years. I now like ketchup and Starbucks lattes and I don't try anymore to explain the baristas the meaning of "latte", "grande", "venti" etc.
I don't smoke. I like quiet environments. I consider myself very open minded and I have a relaxed, compassionate, and non judgemental attitude towards others.
I'm quite tall at 187cm but I kinda gave up on finding beds where I can fit entirely, and I'm fine with feet overflowing a little... just let me know if the bed is unusually small/confined (like bunk beds).
