I am originally from the Puglia region, in south-east Italy. I have received both Laurea (EE, 1996 with a period at Strathclyde University) and PhD (Robotics and Automation, 2000, with a period at Georgia Tech) from the University of Pisa, Italy. From 2000 to 2008 I have been a faculty member at West Virginia University. My research involved control of nonlinear and adaptive control systems, system identification, fault tolerance, machine vision, and sensor fusion, mostly applied to UAVs. I have published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in international journals and conferences, and a couple of book chapters. I have been working for MathWorks since January 2009 for MathWorks, covering different roles, first in the Los Angeles office and then in Natick (MA). Since 2019 I am responsible for the documentation of the Reinforcement Learning and Model Predictive Control toolboxes.
