I'm a Lecturer in Future Energy Networks and part of the Electrical Energy and Power Systems (EEPS) group in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I got my MSc (2002) and PhD (2006) degrees in Electrical Engineering (Power Systems) from the Politecnico di Torino, in Italy. However, I'm originally from Salento, the tip of the heel of the Italian "boot". During my PhD I was also a visiting student at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. After getting my PhD, I worked as a Research Fellow for one year and half in Torino, and then I moved to Imperial College London where I was a Research Associate from January 2008 to April 2011. I currently teach "Power systems operation and economics" and "Smart Grid and sustainable electricity systems". I'm author of two books, five book chapters and more than 70 research papers in top-class peer-reviewed international journals and conferences.
