Lucia Pallottino is currently Associate Professor at the Centro "E. Piaggio" and the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione at the University of Pisa.  She received the "Laurea" degree in Math from the Department of Mathematics in the University of Pisa in 1998. She got a Doctoral degree in Robotics and Industrial Automation at Centro "E. Piaggio" at the Faculty of Engineering, in January 2002. She has been Associate Professor from 2007 to 2015. She has been Visiting Scholar at M.I.T. (2000-2001) in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS ). She has been Visiting Researcher at UCLA, (2004) in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department (MAE ).

She is

- Chair of the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society Italian Chapter (I-RAS) (since Jan. 2015). 
- Associate Editor of the IEEE Transaction on Robotics and of the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems.

- Co-Organizer of the MESAS2014 workshop.

- scientific collaborator in the WALK-MAN European project.

Her main research interests within Robotics are in motion planning and control for nonholonomic vehicles, optimal control of constrained systems, distributed control of multi–robot vehicles and quantised control.

She has published more than 40 papers in International Journal and Conferences (Google scholar h–index=14).

Receipient of the  "IEEE-RAS Italian Chapter Young Author Best Paper Award 2009" for the paper: L. Pallottino, V.G. Scordio, A. Bicchi, E. Frazzoli, "Decentralized cooperative policy for conflict resolution in multivehicle systems," on IEEE Transactions on Robotics, 23 (6):1170-1183, 2007.
