Read Profile

Since childhood, Giuseppe has been fascinated with math and physics which led him to begin his studies in the engineering field in 2013 at the Politecnico di Torino. His interests were mostly associated with problem solving in challenging environments. Consequently, he decided to apply to M.Sc. in mechanical engineering at the same university, developing an interest in vehicle propulsion. In fact, he found the car industry during a particularly thriving era where a paradigm shift was manifesting. The paradigm shift focused on reduction in pollutant emissions and fuel consumption along with several other focuses in electrification and autonomy.

He also attended People and Project Management School in Shanghai during the summer of 2017 which was organized by Consorzio Macchine Utensili (COMAU). Furthermore, he has been involved in project management through numerous academic projects during his university years where he has had the position of team leader.

He is currently working at McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC) on his thesis project related to multi-mode hybrid vehicle transmission design. In general, his study interests are related to system dynamics, propulsion technologies, optimum control theory and thermodynamics.

Apart from academics, Giuseppe likes traveling, discovering the world around him and he enjoys sports such as volleyball and soccer.
