I have obtained Bachelor Degree in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Torino in 2018. I have continued my studies in the same university with a Master Degree in Electronic Engineering: Device and Technologies for ICTs and Optoelectronics which I completed in 2020.
I was also part of the double degree program TOP-UIC in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Chicago for which I have attended courses in the USA and defended my thesis with a local commission.
My thesis on Laser Diodes Power Scaling Techniques was developed in Italy at the OPIphotonics labs under the supervision of professor Guido Perrone.
I am currently enrolled to the XXXVI PhD cycle with a thematic scolarship for the development of automotive radar prototypes under the supervision of professor Riccardo Maggiora.
