I received my degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Sannio in 2005. My thesis work
was concentrated on the "Simulation of steel plants for the development of production strategies". In 2009
I received my Ph.D in Computer Science Engineering from the University of Sannio. During my Ph.D
I spent one year at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, working on the research
project "Use of weather and occupancy forecasts for optimal building climate control (OptiControl)". As
a Post Doc within the Group for Research on Automatic Control Engineering (GRACE), University of
Sannio, I worked on optimization and control of energy systems, in particular microgrids and energy
hubs. I was Post Doc Research fellow within the Automatic Control Laboratory at the Royal Institute of
Technology (KTH), Sweden.
Currently I am a Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and
Physical Sciences, University of Manchester, UK. My research interests include the areas of manufacturing
system simulation and scheduling, optimization of energy systems and stochastic constrained control.
