I graduated in Architecture at Politecnico di Torino, with a thesis on the use of UAV for safety application in construction sites and in technical measures for seismic emergency response. I currently work as a researcher in the Department of Architecture and Design.
Along with the Lab G4CH (Laboratory of Geomatics for Cultural Heritage) and the student team DIRECT (DIsaster RECovery Team) I’ve carried out mapping research in earthquake-hit regions in central Italy and other relevant projects in collaboration with the firefighters and first responders.
Since 2017 I have been working at PIC4SeR (PoliTO Interdepartmental Centre for Service Robotics) as industrial representative for DJI, the world’s leader in commercial and civilian drone industry.
From 2019 I am pursuing a PhD in Architectural and Landscape Heritage, with a thesis focused on Photogrammetric application for the documentation of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
I have an extensive knowledge of drones and their application for research, mapping, humanitarian relief, public safety, built heritage monitoring and damage assessment.
