Short Biography

I earned my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Padova in 2011 and 2014. In the same year I received the Master's degree in Mathematical Modelling and Computation from the Technical University of Denmark, all with Honours. My Master thesis was prepared in collaboration with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Imperial College of London under the supervision of Prof. Alessandro Astolfi. Since then, I joined the Automatic Control Laboratory, ETH ZŘrich as a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. John Lygeros.
See my full CV.

I am currently visiting the University of California, Santa Barbara as a fellow of SNSF, grant number P1EZP2_172122.
