Milan, IT

Lives & works in London, UK

I am a design engineer and innovator working at the intersection of strategy, full-spectrum design and front-end engineering.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design at Politecnico of Milan (Italy) and worked as a freelance designer before joining the dual MA/MSc Innovation Design Engineering at Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London. I graduated with distinction, receiving the Outstanding Achievement Award 2021 for the highest overall performance in my courses.


I collaborated with several companies, including Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and Arrital, with recent designs exhibited at Milan Design Week and Milan Furniture Fair. In my latest works, trained by IBM, I explored the use of Artificial Intelligence for environmental sustainability.

In my practice, I mix curiosity, inventiveness and method to intercept a comprehensive understanding of the design processes, including research, creative problem-solving, prototyping, user interaction, and manufacturing. My multidisciplinary approach allowed me to interface with different disciplines, including design, technology, engineering and sustainability. Although these areas seem distant, they are connected by a common thread: the creation of innovative concepts and products to answer strategic questions. And that is where I excel.
