Francesco Ferrante's CV

Francesco Ferrante is an assistant professor of Systems and Control at the University of Perugia, Italy. From 2017 to 2021, he was maître de conférences at the University of Grenoble Alpes and a member of the Grenoble Images Speech Signal and Control Laboratory. He received in 2010 a ''Laurea degree'' (BSc) in Control Engineering from University ''Sapienza'' in Rome, Italy and in 2012 a ''Laurea Magistrale'' degree (MSc) cum laude in Control Engineering from University ''Tor Vergata'' in Rome, Italy. During 2014, he held a visiting scholar position at the Department of Computer Engineering, University of California Santa Cruz. In 2015, he received a PhD degree in control theory from ''Institut supérieur de l'aéronautique et de l'espace'' (SUPAERO) Toulouse, France. From November 2015 to August 2016, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Clemson University. From August 2015 to September 2016, he held a position as postdoctoral scientist at the Hybrid Systems Laboratory (HSL) at the University of California at Santa Cruz. From 2019 to 2022, he held a position as an andjunct professor at the Department of Automotive Engineering, Clemson University.
