Personal profile

Personal Statement

I'm the director of the Intelligent Computational Engineering Laboratory (ICE-Lab) and I have 15+ years of experience in the field of model based analysis and design optimisation of complex mechanical systems/devices.

I'm also founder member and former general manager of OPTIMAD Engineering S.r.l. – Italian SME, Spin-off of the Politecnico di Torino, active in the field of aerodynamic analysis, design, and optimization.

Research Interests

Currently involved in projects regarding:

  • global optimisation of trans-atmospheric and interplanetary trajectories;
  • multidisciplinary design optimisation under uncertainties of space transportation systems and wind turbines;
  • (re-)entry modelling and simulation of space objects (debris and asteroids) and design for demise; and
  • machine learning techniques for data analytics and meta-modelling.
