bc. M. Mizzoni MSc (Mirko)

PhD Candidate

About Me

I am Mirko, from the charming town of Sora in Italy. My academic journey is rooted in a passion for control engineering and computer science. I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Automatic Control from the prestigious University La Sapienza in Rome, where I graduated with the highest honours. Expanding upon this foundation, I completed a Master of Science in Control Engineering at the same reputable institution. Not only did I attain the highest grade with distinction but I also conducted comprehensive research on the intricacies of my field through an esteemed dissertation. My academic pursuits demonstrate my unwavering dedication to expanding the limits of knowledge in said fields, and I look forward to embracing novel prospects and trials in my vocation.


The topic of my research involve the designprototype realization, and control
of a dexterous arm for accurate aerial robotic manipulation. 


Abstract of the work

Critical infrastructures often consist of confined, dark, and GNSS-denied areas that require manual inspection by expert surveyors, posing inherent risks to human safety.  Although teleoperated UAS systems have mitigated some of these risks, they have not completely replaced manned inspection and have introduced additional overhead.  One of the challenges with these UAV systems is their inability to inspect infrastructures with arbitrary inclination angles while optimizing energy efficiency, sensing capability, and complying with special constraints in confined spaces, such as ballast tanks

General Interests

Aerial robotics; Multivariable feedback control; Nonlinear system theory and control; Robust control
