  • Biography

    Luigi is full Professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, on sabbatical at MERL from 8/2023-3/2024 working with the Multi-Physical Systems team developing Modelica-based models for grid-interactive builds and energy systems. In his academic career he has directed and performed research in electrified systems, with special focus on energy utilities and electrified transportation. His research leverages the Modelica modeling language, the application of software technologies and the exploitation of system identification, control and machine learning for modeling, monitoring, estimation, and control of electrified systems.
