I am a robotics researcher in the Rainbow team at the CNRS in Rennes, France. In my research, I am interested in robot design and control for long-duration autonomy, with the goal of letting robots remain operational over long time horizons, be resilient to changing environmental conditions, and safely interact with humans. More details here.
Starting from October 2021, I will be moving to Waterloo, Canada, to start as an assistant professor in systems and control at the University of Waterloo. If you are interested in working with me, don't hesitate to reach out!
My multi-scale quasiperiodic academic trajectory bounced multiple times between Italy and Germany, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean twice. I studied Mechanical and Automotive Engineering in Napoli and Ingolstadt, respectively, and completed a PhD in Robotics at Georgia Tech in the GRITS Lab advised by Dr. Magnus Egerstedt.

I love playing the piano (and I pretend I can play the trumpet) with a particular preference for jazz and classical music. I enjoy cycling, reading, traveling, building cool robots, discussing future (almost always improbable, if not even absurd) robotics research directions with friends.
