Summary - more information can be found in my personal page:

Born in Genoa, Italy, in March 1983. B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Genoa, in February 2005 and November 2007, respectively and the European Ph.D. degree in power systems, from the same university in March 2011 with a dissertation related to wind and storage modeling and integrated control.

Since September 2012, I have been with the Technical University of Denmark, where I currently work as associate professor in distributed energy resources driven electric power systems. My research interests include power system integration studies, wind and solar data analysis, demand-side and electric vehicles management, and distributed energy resources modeling.


Scientific highlights

- ) modelling of distributed energy resources as batteries, photovoltaic and wind turbines

- ) integration of distributed energy resources in the power systems

- ) microgrids operation and control

- ) power system services techno-economic assessment and policy review

- ) experimental characterization of series-produced electric vehicles

- ) future architecture for renewable based power systems

- ) interaction between energy systems (thermal, electrical, transportation)

- ) power system stability in low inertia grids


Research involvement: currently working in 5 EU and national projects (previously involved in 16 research projects).

- Topcharge (Internal projects leader). EUDP and IFD (Danish) funded projects. The goal of the TOPChargE project is to demonstrate and mature a next-generation high-power charger. The TOPChargE system is centered around a variable topology battery system allowing to store electricity and use it to charge electric vehicles directly from the battery. Project scale: 4 M€; Internal budget: 0.5 M€; 01/2020 - 12/2021 (EUDP); 07/2020 - 06/2023 (IFD).

- ACDC - Autonomously Controlled Distributed Chargers (Project leader). EUDP (Danish) funded project, which will develop an electric vehicle autonomous smart charge controller to ensure the fulfillment of specific grid services. Project scale: 2.4 M€; Internal budget: 0.8 M€; 04/2020 - 03/2023.

- INSULAE (Internal project leader and WP leader). H2020 (European) funded project, which aims at proving technologies for increasing renewables and energy independency in 3 demo-islands (including the island of Bornholm for which I am responsible). Project scale: 12 M€; Internal budget: 1.2 M€; 04/2019 – 03/2023.

- CAR – Creating Automotive Renewal (Internal project leader and WP leader). Interreg South Baltic (European) funded project, which intends to develop systems solutions for the implementation and scale-up of electric vehicle systems. The approach will comprise vehicles, charging posts, payment solutions, business models, and information and discussions with companies and organizations that are interested in investing in fleets of electric vehicles. Project scale: 1.9 M€; Internal budget: 0.2 M€; 01/2018 – 09/2021.
