Automatic Control Laboratory
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich
I am a PhD student with the Automatic Control Laboratory (IfA) at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, supervised by Prof. J. Lygeros.
I obtained the BSc degree in Management Engineering in 2015 and the MSc degree in Control Engineering in 2017, both from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. In 2017, I was a visiting student at the Laboratoire d'Automatique (LA) of EPF Lausanne, Switzerland, where I developed my MSc thesis under the guidance of Prof. G. Ferrari-Trecate. In 2018, I worked as research assistant with Prof. R. Scattolini at the Systems & Control group at DEIB, Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
I am interested in investigating theoretical and practical aspects of control theory, including:
Optimal control, reinforcement learning and approximate dynamic programming
Networked dynamical systems with a focus on renewable energy distribution models.
