About me

I received the Laurea Magistrale degree (cum laude) in Ingegneria dell'Automazione from the University of Padova in 2013 and the Ph.D. degree in Control Theory from the Control and Power Group at Imperial College London in 2017, under the supervision of Alessandro Astolfi. In 2018, I then joined the Control Group and Sidney Sussex College as a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge to collaborate with Rodolphe Sepulchre. In 2021, I became a member of the Automatic Control Laboratory at ETH Zürich, working primarily with Florian Dörfler and John Lygeros.
