Marco Capotondi successfully graduated in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in January 2019, obtaining a final grade of 110/110 cum laude and an honorable mention for the path of excellence achieved during the degree. He made the master's thesis at DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, Munich) focused on the optimization of the trajectory for a satellite using data driven techniques. Subsequently he was involved in a period of collaboration and research with DIAG (Department of Computer, Automatic and Management Engineering "Antonio Ruberti"), with an international conference publication in June 2019. Subsequently, in November 2019 he started the XXXV cycle of Doctorate in Automatics (ABRO), under the supervision of prof. Alessandro De Luca. His research field concerns the fusion of data-driven techniques with classical control techniques, with particular emphasis on application to robotic manipulators.
