is a Stardust ITN Early Stage Researcher at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Her main area of research is active removal/deflection of non-cooperative targets under uncertainty. She obtained a master degree in Mathematics from the University of Pisa, Italy, with a master thesis on Celestial Mechanics and orbit determination. She collaborated with Celestial Mechanics group in Pisa and with the department of Mathematics from the University of Namur, Belgium. Her professional experiences includes also nine months at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Petten, The Netherlands. In the spare time, she likes reading, playing board games and walking.

Project description:

Her preliminary list of objectives and tasks is to investigate optimal proximal motion solutions for single and multiple spacecraft formations, to identify and develop approaches for the active removal/deflection control of non-cooperative targets, to investigate the use of imprecise probabilities for robust system and control design under uncertainty, and to integrate active control under uncertainty in the removal/deflection technology models.
Nonlinear and stochastic optimal control and high order expansions will be considered together with the integration of system design and control under uncertainty. Other methodologies will be uncertainty quantification and characterisation in dynamics and deflection/removal systems, and the implementation of imprecise probabilities-based approaches for robust design of deflection/removal actions .
