Hi! My name is Giorgio: welcome to my website!
I am a Mechanical Engineering student: I got my Bachelor's degree at the Polytechnic University of Milan, where I am going to get my Master's degree as well, specializing in Mechatronics and Robotics.
I am currently working on my master thesis at the Intelligent Manipulation Laboratory (Lincoln, UK).
General topic: use of AI for robotic manipulation tasks.
Last year specialization in Mechatronics and Robotics (robotic systems, control systems, mechanical system dynamics).
Grade average: 28.76 / 30
Grade: 106 / 110
I would say I have a very scientific-oriented mindset and disposition: while I am not a big dreamer, I am really organized and precise about everything I like and care about. While I can be a bit lazy at times (although I believe that the right dose of laziness can be the greatest form of inspiration and motivation) I am definitely curious and have an insatiable desire to understand how things work (I never overcame the "Why?" most children go through) which drives me to learn more and more everyday.
Once I have a target in my sights I become very determined to reach it and, especially when I am really engaged in what I am doing, I can push really hard to get to the finish line.
The most important skills that I owe to my Mechanical Engineering background are a strong critical thinking mindset and the ability to ask the right questions, very useful for problem solving, tackling new challenges and exploring new topics.
I occasionally develop small web applications, mostly built on NodeJS and MongoDB, but I used PHP and MySQL in the past as well.
I am very confident in my computer skills. My most trusted tool is Google: knowing how to Google well is a fundamental skill when tackling any sort of technical problem.
A curated collection of projects I worked on.
My first complex web project: a website find and sell used school books.
A game to be played with friends, in person, but with a smartphone.
