About me

I am looking for talented and motivated PhD students interested in aerial and ground robotics, controls, cyber-physical systems security, and co-design and rapid prototyping. Please contact me if interested.

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems and Information Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia.

My research interest is in Mobile robotics, Autonomous systems, Controls, and Cyber-Physical Systems security.

Short Academic Bio

I obtained both my Bachelor and Master in Electrical Engineering (summa-cum-laude) from the Politecnico di Milano where I was also awarded the gold medal for best graduate student. I obtained a Ph.D. in Robotics and Control Systems from the University of New Mexico where I focused on control of homogeneous and heterogeneous multi-agent systems under communication constraints. Prior to joining UVa as an Assistant Professor, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the PRECISE Center, University of Pennsylvania. where I worked on several topics related to robotics and cyber-physical systems: resilient state estimation against cyber attacks on autonomous and complex vehicles (DARPA-Hacms); synthesis and co-design of programming environments for folding and 3D-printing robotic systems (NSF-PPR Expedition); motion planning of unmanned aerial vehicles under uncertainties, and coordination of autonomous vehicles using V2V technologies (DOT-Utc).
