I graduated in Physics Engineering (Bachelor's degree) and Electronic Engineering (Master's degree), both times at Politecnico di Torino. I am currently specializing in the analysis. design and implementation of power converters for photovoltaic applications, with focus on high efficiency and high power density solutions. My Master's degree thesis concerned the design of a low-voltage battery charger endowed with an innovative control to real-time track the highest efficiency working point.
I attended the Alta Scuola Politecnica (XVII cycle), where I designed an electromagnetic damper to harvest power from agricultural machinery vibrations, in cooperation with Politecnico di Milano and Frandent Group Srl. I am currently a PhD student at Politecnico di Torino, where I am working on the research and design of innovative solutions for Power Optimizers, power converters for the grid-integration of photovoltaic modules, in cooperation with STMicroelectronics.
I developed an effective planning capability to handle multiple activities in parallel, identifying priorities and respecting deadlines. Thanks to multiple experiences in associations, volunteering and enterntainment, I acquired excellent abilities in effective communication, public speaking and leadership. My approach towards work is characterized by dedication and motivation, enhancing team working and effective communication with my colleagues.
