My research activities focus on applying new algorithms for the optimization of industrial processes and systems. Specifically, I am currently working on developing a cloud-based platform for the real-time optimization of energy-systems.

I received my Batchelor degree in chemical engineering from the University of Pisa in 2011 and I joined Imperial College for a Master degree (2011-2012) and a Ph.D. (2013-2017).
