PhD Conference and PhD Expo
Today I attended the PhD Conference and the PhD Expo at the University of Udine.
The PhD Conference involves all the PhD students of the doctoral program I have just completed, who give a short seminar to illustrate their research progresses and hurdles, while the PhD Expo has been recently extended to the whole University, and all the PhD students of the University of Udine can participate and present their research at a poster session, open to industry.
It was a great occasion to greet all my friends at the University of Udine before moving to Lund.
It was quite weird for me to attend without having talks to give and posters to present! I had the chance to focus on my colleagues’ presentations and posters: excellent sessions and interesting research! Good luck to everybody with your PhD projects!

PhD Conference and PhD Expo: previous editions
This is a video on a past edition.
And here is a press release mentioning me and my poster at the 2014 Edition!
PhD Thesis Defense
This morning I had my PhD thesis defense, at the University of Udine.
The presentation is available here. I thank the whole Committee for the positive evaluation, and my supervisor Franco Blanchini for his guidance and his support during this learning journey.
I will stay at the University of Udine until the end of May as a research collaborator, involved in the PoCN project on “Advanced manipulation systems for object orientation in production lines”.
Then, in June I will move to the LCCC (Lund Center for Control of Complex Engineering Systems) Linnaeus Center at the Department of Automatic Control, Lund University: a new adventure in my learning journey!
The PoCN project workshop “Mathematics for Industrial Automation” took place today!
The PoCN project: Advanced manipulation systems for object orientation in production lines
Since November 2015, I have been involved in an applied research project at the University of Udine, with Franco Blanchini, Carlo Savorgnan and Daniele Casagrande, in cooperation with the company Brovedani Group. The goal of the project is to develop an algorithm and a simulator to automatise the correct orientation of pieces on a conveyor belt in a production line.
The PoCN project workshop
The workshop “Mathematics for Industrial Automation” has been organised within the PoCN project, supported by the Italian Ministry of University and Education and by AREA Science Park Trieste. Here is the program with all the guest speakers.
All of the presentations of the day can be downloaded here.
PhD Thesis submitted!
The final version of my PhD thesis, “Structural Analysis and Control of Dynamical Networks”, has been submitted to the Committee members!
I thank my supervisor Franco Blanchini for his invaluable guidance, and all the people who I have met and from whom I have learned a lot during these years.
I will defend my PhD thesis on April, 8.
