About Me

I currently work at Salmoiraghi S.p.A. as Software Development Manager in the automation field.
I studied engineering at Politecnico di Milano getting the M.Sc. in Aeronautical Engineering and later on a Master in Management for Digital Innovation at MIP (Politecnico di Milano Business School). In the meanwhile I spent two years working at SISSA (Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati), focusing on numerical modelling and applied mathematics.
Thanks to my mixed background, I am always looking for new technological challenges, both from the technical and strategic point of views, that can be plugged in into the automation field.
In my spare time I like to practice sports (in particular volleyball), traveling, sailing and home brewing.

Software Development Manager

Salmoiraghi Automatic Handling S.p.A. October 2016 - Ongoing

My main job is, on one hand, to manage the software engineers work (and mine as well) and, on the other, contribute technically to the development and commissioning of systems.
Main Activities:

  • AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) system development and commissioning
  • Analysis, simulation and optimization of automatic system performances
  • IoT and Big Data Analytics development for automatic systems
  • Artificial Vision for Industrial applications
  • Database User Interface pages development

Research fellow

SISSA September 2014 - September 2016

I worked in the Underwater Blue Efficiency project framework, investigating and developing several software programs related to geometrical parametrization, model order reduction and fluid dynamics simulations.
For these tasks, I designed and contribute to two software libraries: PyGem and EZyRB.
Goal: define the optimal geometries of the exhaust manifold with respect to emissions efficiency and vibration reduction through numerical simulations.
Partners: Monte Carlo Yachts, OPTIMAD Engineering, University of Udine and Cergol Engineering (among others).
