I am a Research Associate in the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and, since 2017, I am also an Early Career Fellow of the Leverhulme Trust.
My main interests include optimal control, game theory and their application to the smart grid. My research activity focuses on the design of novel control and market solutions for the deployment of a sustainable and decarbonized electricity grid.
I received my BSc and MSc in Control Engineering from the University of Rome Tor Vergata in 2008 and 2011, respectively. In 2015, I obtained my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Imperial College London.
