Short biography

I was born in Benevento, Italy, in 1989. I received the bachelor’s degree in computer engineering (2012), the master’s degree in electronic engineering (2016), and the doctorate in information engineering (2020) from the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy. From May to November 2016, I joined the automatic control group (GRACE) as a research fellow at the same university. 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 November 2019, I was a visiting Ph.D. student at LAAS - CNRS, in Toulouse, working with Prof. Dr. Antonio Franchi and his team. From June 2020 to July 2022, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Czech Technical University in Prague, working with the Multi-robot System (MRS) Group together with Prof. Dr. Martin Saska. Currently, I'm a tenured researcher at the Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico (RSE) S.p.A., a publicly controlled research organization, with the Department of Generation Technologies and Materials, and an associate researcher with the Multi-robot System (MRS) Group working with Prof. Dr. Martin Saska. Since 2022 I serve as associate editor for International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (ICUAS). My research interests are in simulation, control and motion planning problems for unmanned aerial vehicles, autonomous systems, model predictive control techniques, optimization problems for energy systems, and robot manipulators.
