Andrea Caspani is currently a PhD researcher within the Transport Engineering and Logistics section of the Maritime and Transport Technology Department at Delft University of Technology. He obtained a Master degree in Automation and Control engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2019. In his thesis work, he focused on model based fault detection methods for large scale interconnected systems.

From 2019 to 2023 he worked for e-Novia, an enterprises factory based in Milan as part of the Automation and Control team, focusing on estimation algorithms, vehicle dynamics and robotics.

In September 2023 he started a PhD at TU Delft within the project AmmoniaDrive. Project goal is to develop an innovative ammonia powered ship, his research will be devoted to the development of smart diagnostics, prognostics and control methods.
