I'm Leonardo Cecchin
Born in northern Italy on 15 June 1996, since I was a kid I loved mechanics, taking all opportunities to build something, fix machines, or disassemble them.
"Once you stop learning, you start dying"
I am driven by my curiosity: be it in my work, my free time, my vacations, I always strive to learn something new.
I love mountain: freeride skiing, enduro mountain biking, canyoning and free climbing. I love mountain since it gives me the opportunity to relax and enjoy nature without everyday concerns.
I always feel the need of doing something, be it designing and building something or doing sports, it is just not like me to laze around.
I owe a lot to being grown in a farmhouse, where I could learn craftmanship and play around with machines and tools.
Currently working on my PhD project about Nonlinear Model Predictive Control applied to hydraulic systems
During past years I developed a deep interest in optimal control. I believe that it is the perfect combination of mathemathics and engineering.
“Theory without practice is empty”, as much as I love control theory, I also love its implementation: seeing it work and solve real challenges.
In my professional life, I am focusing on improving my management skills, on a personal, project, and small teams level.

Travels | Photography
I love to travel, admire and learn things from all around the world. In my opinion one of the best growth opportunities we are given.
I am also passionate about photography: here some of my favourite shots.
