Federico works with drones at Verity Studios, an ETH spinoff company that creates a new breed of dynamic flying machines and related systems for the live entertainment industry, leveraging technological innovation, advanced algorithms, and the art of design in novel ways. He completed is PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Prof. D’Andrea at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. His work features an 8m long rope bridge built by flying machines, physical human-quadrocopter interaction, and coordinated multi-vehicle flight. During his studies, he also contributed to the project Music in Motion by creating algorithms and tools that facilitate the generation of multi-quadrocopter choreographies. He also worked on the Flight Assembled Architecture installation, a 6m tall tower built by quadrocopters out of 1500 foam modules. Federico received the Willi Studer Award 2012 for the best MSc degree and the Hans-Eggenberger-Prize 2012 for his MSc Thesis. He was finalist of the Georges Giralt PhD award 2016.
