I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton ORFE in the groups of Bartolomeo Stellato and Jaime Fisac. My research areas are Integer Programming, Mathematical Optimization, (Algorithmic) Game Theory, and Machine Learning. Specifically, my research focuses on non-convex games, i.e., multi-agent decision-making in systems where selfish and mutually-interacting agents solve complex optimization problems. I combine rigorous optimization tools with Algorithmic Game Theory to design data-driven algorithms and theoretical insights to guide the agents toward efficient and socially-beneficial outcomes. My research provides tools to explain and inform decision-making in energy markets, autonomous systems, intelligent infrastructure and cities, and safe robotics.

Diversity and Inclusion. I sincerely believe that a diverse environment promotes more stimulating social and intellectual interactions. I am also commited to promote an equitable access to knowledge. Feel free to reach me for any other matter that concerns you.

About Me. I hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Polytechnique Montreal, where I worked at the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Data Science for Real-Time Decision-Making with Andrea Lodi on my thesis 鈥Mathematical Programming Games鈥. I also hold a B.Sc. in Engineering and Management from Politecnico di Torino, and I spent my Erasmus exchange at Tampere University of Technology. I was born (roughly) when this show was airing in Torino (Italy). I grew up in Trofarello, a small town in the urban area surrounding the Piedmontese capital.
