Introduction
I earned my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2016 and the M.S. in 2020 both at the University of Florence. During 2021 I work at Knorr-Bramse Rail Systems as a Testing Engineer. I am currently enrolled as a PhD student in Engineering Mechanics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, conducting my research at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI)

The role of powered two-wheeler (PTW) transport from the perspective of a more sustainable mobility system is undermined by the associated high injury risk due to crashes. Motorcycle-based active safety systems promise to avoid or mitigate many of these crashes suffered by PTW riders. Despite this, most systems are still only in the prototype phase...
Conference Paper
The aim of the study is to compare the applicability of PTW (Powered Two-Wheeled) active safety systems in the US, Australia and Italy, using police-reported accident data in each region. The goal is to understand which active systems could have the greatest likelihood of reducing PTW crashes in each country.
