Giovanni Rinaldi received his B.Sc. in Physics and M.Sc. in Applied Physics from the University of Messina, Italy, respectively in 2009 and 2012. Then, in 2014, he received his M.Sc. in Renewable Energy with specialization in Ocean Energy and Offshore Wind. Giovanni is currently working as Early Stage Researcher at the University of Exeter within the European program OceaNET. His work focuses on developing a reliability-based tool to reduce Operation and Maintenance costs of Marine Energy devices and optimize the decision-making process in the management of offshore farms.
