I received the M.S. degree in Automation Engineering from the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy, in 2009, where I received the Ph.D. in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. My interests comprise mobile robotics, autonomous vehicles, energy, computer vision and control systems. My research concerns the area of advanced sensory perception for mobile robotics and computer vision. In 2009, I had the pleasure to visit the Space Robotics Lab of Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan. In 2013-14, as visiting researcher at University of Almerìa, Spain, I have worked with the Automatic, Electronic and Robotics Research Group TEP-197 studying new advanced navigation techniques for mobile robotics and autonomous driving. At the present, I am a post-doc researcher in the vehicle dynamics group of Chalmers University ot Technology, where I am currently conducting researches on autonomous driving systems for trucks along with the project ANTWaY.
