Dr Gianmario Rinaldi

Lecturer in Clean Powertrains (E&R)


I received a BSc degree in Energy Engineering, aMSc degree in Electrical Engineering, and a PhD degree in Control Systems Engineering from the University of Pavia, Italy, in 2014, 2016, and 2019, respectively.

I have been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter from October 2019 until June 2021. The research activity undertaken during my Postdoc was mainly focused on the design and experimental validation (in sea) of advanced information-driven optimal navigation and control strategies for underwater electric vehicles.  Further details of the project can be found at

Since July 2021, I am Lecturer in Clean Powertrains (Education and Research), joining the Centre for Future Clean Mobility of the University of Exeter (

My research interests include: control and estimation, sliding mode observers, and optimisation. The research applications include energy networks, autonomous vehicles and clean powertrains.
