About me

Academic Titles and Experience

Andrea is currently a Research Associate at the University of Luxembourg. He received his PhD in Production Engineering from KTH in 2021. He was a member of the Board of Directors at KTH from July 2016 to June 2018. He has a BSc in Electronic Engineering and a MSc in Computer Science and Engineering with major in Machine Learning. He is also an experienced freelance Web Developer since 2005.


Andrea's current research focuses on procedural knowledge transfer for human-machine collaboration, applied to operator-centered assembly lines, runtime failure prevention in process planning and path planning of robot manipulators. He is also researching on industrial uses of augmented and/or virtual reality and safety of operators working with industrial robots.

PhD Chapter at KTH

Andrea was Chairperson 2016/2018 of the PhD Chapter at KTH, the doctoral students' network. He had been member of their Board from November 2015 to June 2018. PhD students' representations included the KTH Board of Directors (US), the Directors of Third Cycle Research Education (FA) Committee, the Faculty Council (FR) Committee, the Employment Committee (AU) and the Promotion Committee (BN).
