Federico is a PhD candidate with Prof. Raffaello D'Andrea at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control (IDSC) at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Federico received his Master of Science in Robotics, Systems and Control from ETH Zurich in 2011. During his Master Thesis, he contributed to the project Music in Motion by creating algorithms and tools that facilitate the generation of multi-quadrocopter choreographies. After his Master degree, he joined IDSC and worked on the Flight Assembled Architecture installation, a 6-meter tall tower built by quadrocopters out of 1500 foam modules. Currently, his research features aerial construction, physical human-quadrocopter interaction, and coordinated multi-vehicle flight. During his internship in Vancouver, he contributed to Titanoboa, an 18-meter long electromechanical snake, performing initial research and proving that it would work.
Federico received the Willi Studer Award 2012 for the best master degree in Robotics, Systems and Control and the Hans-Eggenberger-Prize 2012 for his Master Thesis.
