About me

I got a PhD in Physics in 2017 at the University of Genoa. The PhD thesis focused on data analysis and hardware implementation within the research and upgrade programs of the LHCb experiment at CERN.

I'm currently working in IIT in Genoa in the Advanced Robotics (ADVR) Department in the field of Industrial Robotics as a Post Doc in the Robotic Automation INspection (RAIN) laboratory (https://advr.iit.it/index.php/research/rain).


My activities in IIT include the following projects:

2022 - now - INAIL - Mitigation of falls from a height

2019 - 2021 - Ansaldo Energia - Inspection robot for combustion chamber inspection

2018 - 2019 - Luxottica - Automated quality control system

2017 - 2019 - Ansaldo Energia - Crawler robot for power generator inspection
