During my final M.Sc. year in mechanical engineering at Politecnico di Milano I had the opportunity to develop my master thesis at the Intelligent Manipulation Lab at the University of Lincoln, from September 2021 through February 2022.

I am extremely grateful for these months because not only have I been able to develop a thesis on extremely interesting topics such as robotic manipulation and artificial intelligence, but I have also been able to closely observe the work of a research group in an academic environment.
IML is in fact a very integrated group, where master students, PhD students and post-docs work on different projects, but always with an eye to collaboration and sharing experiences.

This atmosphere allowed me to get a more concrete idea of the world of research, particularly academic research, and to have experiences that I would not have imagined before joining, such as collaborating on the publication of a paper, attending an interview for a potential new member of the group or reviewing a paper.
Looking back at how I changed during this period, I see that this experience has given me a lot, not only in terms of practical knowledge, which is obviously important, but mainly in terms of experience and self-confidence.
