I am an enthusiastic R&D developer of advanced robotic applications. Thanks to my participation to several robotic research projects, I have gained a wide experience in interfacing and programming industrial, aerial and ground mobile robots performing service tasks.
Check the BIO to read my short biography, and the skills section to learn about some of my technical skills.
In recent works you can view some results of my work as R&D expert through nice videoclips.

I was born in Naples, Italy, on December 13, 1987. I received my Master's degree in computer science from the University of Naples Federico II and completed the PhD degree in Information and Automation Engineering at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (DIETI) in the same institution.
After my PhD I spent two years at PRISMA Laboratory as Post-Doc and consultant at consultant at CREATE consortium. During my research activities I got the chance to be involved in several collaborative robotics research project who improve my knowledge of robotics and my skills as robotic developer.
In 2018 I have published my first book about robotics programming using ROS: Mastering ROS for Robotics Programming - Second Edition, edited by Packt Publishing.
Here are listed some of the International research project in which I have been involved:
Researcher and developer in Robotics. Topics: Human-Robot Interaction and Cooperation - Autonomous action execution of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - High-level and Low-level action planning and execution.
Author of Mastering ROS for Robotics Programming - Second Edition, published on Febrauary 2018.
Application developer in Robotics. Topics: Human-Robot Interaction and Cooperation - Autonomous action execution of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - High-level and Low-level action planning and execution.
Researcher and developer in Robotics. Topics: Human-Robot interaction and control of mutliple UAVs performing Search & Rescue operations in mountains.
Developer in Robotics. Topics: Topics: Mobile navigation in cluttered environment of a steering mobile robot.
Technical reviewer for the book Robot operating system cookbook, by Kumar Bipin.
Feasibility study for a visual inspection system suitable to be mounted on a VToL UAV.
Score: Magna cum laude
