Short biography

I was born in Benevento, Italy, in 1989. I received the bachelor’s degree in computer engineering (2012) and the master’s degree in electronic engineering for automation and telecommunication (2016) from the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy. From May to November 2016, I was a research fellow at the same university. Later on, I joined the automatic control group (GRACE) in the same university as a doctorate student. During my doctorate, I worked on the use of software-in-the-loop methodologies for the analysis and control design of small UAV systems, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Luigi Iannelli. From March to October 2019, I was a visiting Ph.D. student at LAAS - CNRS, in Toulouse, working with Prof. Dr. Antonio Franchi and his team. Currently, I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Czech Technical University in Prague, working in the Multi-robot System (MRS) Group together with Prof. Dr. Martin Saska. My research interests are in simulation and control, object detection and tracking from images, robot manipulation, software and hardware-in-the-loop methodologies, model predictive control, symboloic control under temporal-logic specifications and planning for unmanned aerial vehicles. I was among the finalists of the “Aerial robotics control and perception challenge”, the Industrial Challenge of the 26th Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation (MED’18)1, organized by the Mediterranean Control Association, and among the participants of the LAAS Team selected as a finalist of the Mohammed Bin Zayed Robotics Competition 2020.
