I am currently pursuing a Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering at UC Riverside, in Dr. Fabio Pasqualetti’s lab. Previously, I obtained a M.Sc. is in Robotics and Automation Engineering and a B.Sc. is in Computer Engineering, both from the University of Pisa, Italy. I have a two years experience in the space science and research field, having collaborated as a student with the European Space Agency. From December 2017 to June 2018 I was Visiting Scholar at the Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Dr. Magnus Egerstedt and Prof.ssa Lucia Pallottino, working on barrier certificates for safety of swarms of mixed human/autonomous networks of vehicles.
