Main Focus

I am a visiting student from the in Lecce, where I collaborate with .
I'm working at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in the of about the development of advanced control techniques for Unamnned Aerial Vehicles.
I am interested in the research regarding aerial robotics, in particular about the control of hybrid dynamic systems and the design of trajectory generation strategies based on optimal control techniques.
