I am a Ph.D. student in Energetics from the 39° cycle. In 2021 I received my B.Sc. cum laude in Energy Engineering from Politecnico di Torino. Throughout my B.Sc., I was part of the "Giovani Talenti" program, and I was awarded the corresponding scholarship. In 2023 I received my M.Sc in Energy and Nuclear Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, and in Mechanical Engineering from University of Illinois Chicago (USA).
As a student I mainly focused on the many aspects of energy production (both fossil and renewable), transmission, storage, use, and policies, while also developing a broader knowledge of the engineering disciplines, studying subjects related to mechanics, fluid dynamics, electronics, and artificial intelligence. Throughout my academic career I had the chance to develop many projects (both alone and in a group) and to do research work both during an internship at the Energy Center Lab of the Politencico di Torino (2021) - focusing on the characterization of the equivalent Thévenin circuits for Lithium-ion batteries - and during my stay at University of Illinois Chicago (2022-2023) - focusing on the application of machine learning techniques to model the sorption capacity of an innovative atmospheric water harvesting device.
Now, as a Ph.D. student, I am working on the optimization of innovative Perovskite-based solar cells through Artificial Intelligence techniques in collaboration with the Italian National Research Council (CNR) and the CHOSE (Polo Solare Organico della Regione Lazio).
