I am a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at The Ohio State University, and Associate Fellow at the Center for Automotive Research (CAR). I received my BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from Universita' Politecnica delle Marche, Italy, in 2003 and I received her MS and PhD from The Ohio State University in 2007 and 2010, respectively, under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Serrani. From 2010 to August 2013 I worked as Research Associate and Senior Research Associate at the Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. My research interest lies in the field of control and system theory, nonlinear, robust and adaptive control, embedded systems, tracking and regulation problems with applications in robotics, aerospace and automotive engineering.
As one of the three ECE faculty that runs the ECE MS Program, I created this website (1) for prospective MS students to explore what opportunities they will be offered in our Department and at OSU; (2) for our current MS students to find answers to some FAQs and to learn about the ongoing projects they can join; and (3) for all Companies or Research Labs that want to build a partnership with our MS Program.
UAV Multispectral ImagingThe project focuses on the development of a UAV platform-based multi-sensor system for early detection and monitoring of powdery and downy mildew in cucurbit crops. Cucurbit Downy Mildew (DM) and Powdery Mildew (PM) are some of the most important... | LEARN MORE
LED Lighting Performance TestingLight-emitting diodes (LEDs) are used every day more in airfield lighting applications due to their potential benefits to pilots and airport operators. One major benefit is the potential to provide more reliable operations and reduce maintenance... | LEARN MORE
Robust Communication for Autonomous SystemsThis project aims at developing a robust communication platform for UAVs and UGVs using USRPs and the 802.11p protocol. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Video of Robust Communication for Autonomous Systems... | LEARN MORE
Unmanned Ground VehiclesThis project aims at developing a swarm of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) capable of performing a mission. The project involves several components that go from control design to embedded system, software development and image processing. In particular,... | LEARN MORE
As part of their Degree requirements, our MS students are asked to work on either a research topic or a hands-on project. The main goal of this Lab is to provide research and innovation through project-based learning experience. We want to offer the new generations of ECE MS students real-world challenging projects that will allow the students the gain some high level hands-on experience while contributing to their research field.
