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.
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 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.
