Dr Cecotti received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from Oxford Brookes University, UK, in 2013. He worked for Tata Motors and Dyson on different automotive projects, focused on the control of electric and hybrid electric powertrains, and the development of autonomous vehicles. He then moved to Cranfield University to work on several research projects focused on vehicle automation. His research interests include vehicle trajectory control, path planning, localisation and sensor fusion, applied to autonomous ground vehicles. 

As part of the HumanDrive project, Dr Cecotti is working on the definition of a human behavioural model suitable for the validation of autonomous vehicles. He is also involved with the planning and the execution of the experimental trials, to evaluate the performance of the HumanDrive autonomous vehicle.
