A fast-moving pulsar appears to have punched a hole in a disk of gas around its companion star and launched a fragment of the disk outward at a speed of about 40 million miles per hour. NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is tracking this cosmic clump, which appears to be picking up speed as it moves out. The double star system PSR B1259-63/LS 2883 – or B1259 for short – contains a star about 30 times as massive as the Sun and a pulsar, an ultra-dense neutron star left behi...

Flowing ice and a surprising extended haze are among the newest discoveries from NASA's New Horizons mission, which reveal distant Pluto to be an icy world of wonders. "We knew that a mission to Pluto would bring some surprises, and now -- 10 days after closest approach -- we can say that our expectation has been more than surpassed," said John Grunsfeld, NASA's associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate. "With flowing ices, exotic surface chemistry, mountain ranges, and vast...

NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the "habitable zone" around a sun-like star. This discovery and the introduction of 11 other new small habitable zone candidate planets mark another milestone in the journey to finding another "Earth." The newly discovered Kepler-452b is the smallest planet to date discovered orbiting in the habitable zone -- the area around a star where liquid water could pool on the surface of an orbiting planet -- of a G2-type star, li...

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has been used to detect the most distant clouds of star-forming gas yet found in normal galaxies in the early Universe. The new observations allow astronomers to start to see how the first galaxies were built up and how they cleared the cosmic fog during the era of reionisation. This is the first time that such galaxies are seen as more than just faint blobs. When the first galaxies started to form a few hundred million years after t...

    Social skills
    and competences
     
    I like working both individually and within a team, but my inclination to be an outgoing and social person, although very respectful, makes me do my best in contexts involving cooperation among peers and requiring good communication skills, as experienced during the development of the UCISAT-1 Cubesat or the ARCADE project.
    Moreover, I like to organize events and to be part of networks of people committed to compare ideas, create motivation and share opportunities.
     
    Organisational skills
    and competences
     
    Overall, I consider myself a reliable and well organized person. In particular, I believe that all the time I have spent living on my own, in particular abroad, made me considerably improve my organizational skills.
    These skills demonstrated to be fundamental in many academic and professional experiences, such as the project management of the ARCADE project, the tutoring/teaching activity and during the recent feasibility study for an ISS payload.
     
    Technical skills
    and competences
     
    Thanks to several hands-on experiences – like a test campaign of a piezoelectric sensor – and personal hobbies – such as water rocketry – I have gained a good command of typical laboratory instruments, equipment and hand tools.
    In addition, throughout the years I have acquired a good knowledge of several software packages and programming languages, as detailed below.
