I was born in Conegliano (Italy) in 1974. I received the Laurea degree in Engineering from the University of Udine (Udine, Italy), in June 2000 and the Ph.D. degree from the same University in May 2005, discussing a thesis on Constrained and Optimal Control. I began my research activity at Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica, University of Udine. From 2001 to 2003 I was Research Fellow at International School for Advanced Studies (Trieste, Italy). From November 2006 I am with University of Trieste, Dipartimento di Ingegneria e Architettura. My research interests include Control Theory, Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning.
