I was born in Maglie (LE), Italy, in 1982. I received the Bachelor Degree (Laurea Triennale) in Computer Science Engineering, and the Master Degree (Laurea Specialistica) in Automation both from the University of Pavia (Italy), respectively in 2004 and in 2006; and the Ph.D. degree in Automation, Robotics and Telematics, with full marks and honors (summa cum laude), from the University of Seville (Spain) in 2011. My thesis, titled “Model Predictive Control for Systems with Changing Setpoints”, was supervised by Prof. Dr. Eduardo F. Camacho and Prof. Dr. Daniel Limon.
From September 2013 to December 2016 I have been Assistant Researcher at the Argentinean National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), and from 2017 to 2020 I have been Associate Researcher at the same insitution.
