    WORK EXPERIENCE

     

    Dec.2012 - Present. R&D Software Engineer at Guidance Navigation

    I am currently part of the future engineering team and I am responsible for developing cutting edge software solutions. My team has the aim of incorporating research level technologies into new commercial sensors for use in the marine navigation market. My role involves:

    o  research, development and implementation of software solutions to advance projects through the proof-of-concept phase (programming is carried out using Matlab and Visual Studio);

    o  collaboration with external academic teams;

    o  meeting deliverable requirements set out by the project funding body (part demonstrated through the preparation and submission of deliverable reports).

     

    Apr. 2011 – Nov.2012.  Automation Control Software Developer at Ocado Technology

    As automation control software developer I was creating and implementing software which directly controlled the hardware of the automated warehouse. I had been given responsibility for a number of projects focused on increasing the capacity of the distribution systems. All of my work directly affected the live production line and thus required:

    o  strong attention to detail;

    o  ability to work and make decisions within tight deadlines;

    o  ability to work closely and effectively with colleagues from within and outside the company.

     

    Mar. 2008 – Jun.2008.Research Collaboratorat University of Padova, Department of Mechanical Engineering

          Project title :“Development of a software for aerodynamic profiles analysis”.

    During this research collaboration with the University I was involved in a common project between the University and the MAN Turbo Company. My role was dedicated to expanding the code I produced during my BEng thesis for performance estimation of steam turbines. The algorithms were implemented in Matlab. In addition I had to add functionality to the GUI previously implemented and create a technical user manual. During this project my role was focused on:

    o   software development in Matlab;

    o   collaboration with Man Turbo people involved in the project;

    o   report to the University supervisor.

     

    EDUCATION AND TRAINING

    Jan. 2010 –   Feb. 2011. Cranfield University: MSc by Research in Image Processing and Robotics

    Main subjects: image processing, computer vision, robotics.

    Thesis: “Self Localization And Mapping (SLAM) Using Optical And Thermal Imagery”. The thesis is based on a one year research project during which I developed a solution for the Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) problem. I created software using C++ (Visual Studio) and which was applied to a wheeled robot equipped with optical and thermal cameras. The data from the cameras are used independently from each other allowing a day-based navigation (using optical and thermal data) as well as a night-based navigation (using thermal data only).The overall system is able to build a map of the explored environment and localize itself within this map without prior knowledge of the environment or its position. Post-processing was carried out using Matlab.

    During my research project I also had the opportunity to participate at the BMVA Computer Vision Summer School in August 2011. This course gave me a valuable introduction to the different available techniques in Computer Vision to analyse image data and fortified my skills in applied mathematics.

     

    Oct. 2007 – Dec. 2009. University of Padova: MEng in Aerospace Engineering – marks 110/110

    Main subjects: Satellite Systems and Controls (mainly focused on ADC subsystem), Aerospace Structures, Fluid Dynamics, Space Propulsion, Numerical Methods, Flight Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Applied Mechanics, Manufacturing process and systems, Thermal control for satellites, Astrodynamics, Space robotics, Space instrumentations.

    University Projects:  

    o   Fluid dynamic laboratory(STAR CD and STAR CCM+);

    o   Fluid dynamic design (Matlab, Mathcad, STAR CCM+ and ProE Wildfire 3.0);

    o   Space Propulsion(Study of the behaviour of a convergent nozzle and a convergent-divergent nozzle given the information about the fluid at the beginning of the nozzle (subsonic to subsonic, subsonic to supersonic), code developed in Delphi 7.0 with GUI;

    o   Numerical methods(Matlab with GUI);

    o   Space Systems and Controls (analysis of satellite stabilization - ADC subsystem, Matlab);

    o   Robotics(designing a robotic arm for a Mars climbing robot prototype 3D drawings using ProE WildFire).

    Thesis: Motion Measurements by Vision System of a Climber Robot for Planetary Exploration”. In thisthesis project I developed a code in Matlab to recover the displacement of a conceptual climber robot. The system used initially a single camera and latterly a stereo camera to provide image data of the anticipated low level of detail environment. I also created a camera calibration code in order to recover the parameters of the cameras.

    The wide range of courses and projects undertaken during this degree featured strong emphasis on aerospace and space engineering. This further strengthened my passion and interest in this field.

     

     

    Oct. 2004 – Sept. 2007. University of Padova: BEng in Aerospace Engineering – marks 102/110

    Main subjects: Satellite systems and controls (System Engineering/ADC, Thermal and Power subsystems), Aerospace Structures, Fluid dynamics, Aerospace Propulsion, Flight Mechanics, Mathematics, Physics, Numerical Methods, Technical drawings, 3D modelling, Economics, Electronics, Thermodynamics, Materials, Applied Mechanics, Satellite Dynamics (orbits), Astronomy and astrophysics, Turbo machinery, Aerodynamics, Aerospace Propulsion.

    University Projects:  Geometric modelling (ProE Wildfire), other projects involved topics such as Thermodynamics, Applied Mechanics, Propulsion, Satellite systems and controls.

    Thesis: “Implementation of a code for calculating the characteristic curves of a multistage steam turbine”. Thethesis project was in collaboration with MAN Turbo (based in Schio (VI)-Italy) in which I developed a software to estimate the efficiency of steam turbines. Part of the work involved collaboration with fellow students who created various subroutines for the code. The project included creating and managing a database for the geometric properties of the turbine. The code was developed in Matlab (with GUI)and a database created using Microsoft Access.

    This project gave me indispensable experience in coordinating an engineering project and working as a team.
