Luca Mantelli was born in Genoa in 1992. He obtained his master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering – Energy and Aeronautics at University of Genoa in March 2017 with the thesis “Two-phase flow modeling by using level set methods coupled with Navier-Stokes equations”. He started a scholarship focused on “Coupling of Navier-Stokes Equation and Magnetic Fields for Level Set Front Evolution” in May 2017. He joined TPG as PhD student with a research activity on “Advanced controls development and application to innovative energy systems” in November 2017. During his PhD he has worked on simulation, control and performance analysis of fuel cell hybrid systems within the “BioHypp” European project. In 2018 he took part on a study regarding surge mitigation and recovery in fuel cell hybrid systems at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) of Morgantown, WV (USA). In 2019 he was a visiting researcher at Mälardalen University in Västerås (Sweden), where he worked on the application of Bayesian networks for the diagnosis of hybrid systems.
