Assistant Professor

About Me

In 2016, I received a Ph. D degree in Thermal Energy Engineering from the University of Pisa. My graduate work focused on the fundamental and applied research of two-phase heat transfer systems, as well as the experimental and numerical modelling of phase-change heat transfer. As a member of the Department of Design Production & Management, I have been working as a postdoc researcher at the University of Twente. Currently, we are working in the area of understanding of manufacturing and materials processing through additive manufacturing and bringing this knowledge to energy conversion and storage systems. Particularly, my research aims to bridge the gap between advanced manufacturing technologies, advanced materials and advanced engineering applications.
