Education and training
• From October 2010 to May 2011
Master Thesis work in collaboration with CGS S.p.A., Satellite Department. The work deals with the problem of an attitude maneuver control system for a spacecraft with two flexible appendages using thrusters and reaction wheels. A paper has been accepted for ESA-GNC 2011 Symposium (see Publications).
• From October 2008 to May 2011
Master Degree cum laude in Astronautical Engineering, School of Aerospace Engineering, University of Rome La Sapienza, thesis “Large attitude manauevrs of a spacecraft with flexible appendages”, tutor Prof. F. Curti, Ing. M. Battilana.
• From May 2009 to February 2010
Collaboration with the School of Aerospace Engineering laboratories for the realization of the University satellites EduSat, Cubesat and PocketQub: solar cells characterization and solar arrays manufacturing.
• From February 2009 to June 2010
Participation in the European Space Agency REXUS program: test in micro-gravity conditions of a deployable boom for gravity gradient attitude stabilization of University satellites. Experiment was successful, and post-flight data analysis is ongoing. Two papers have been presented at IAC 2010 on this topic. The experience included:
- PDR and Training Week at DLR Oberpfaffenhofen;
- CDR at DLR Oberpfaffenhofen;
- Vibration test at ESA-ESTEC, Nordwijk;
- Launch Campaign at Esrange Space Center, Kiruna.
- REXUS Result Symposium, DLR Bremen.
• From February to October 2008
Realization of a hexapod rover leg (mechanical and electronic aspects) as Bachelor Degree stage in the University of Bologna, and study of the motion system and parameters trade-off as Bachelor thesis work. A paper regarding this work has been published.
• From October 2005 to October 2008
Bachelor Degree in Aerospace Engineering, Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, 2nd Faculty of Engineering Seat of Forlì, thesis “Motion system for a hexapod rover”, tutor Prof. Piergentili Fabrizio, grade 109/110.
• From September 2000 to July 2005
Alessandro Volta Scientific High School, Riccione (RN). Scientific Diploma with 100/100. Major subjects: mathematics, physics, Earth science, Italian, English, philosophy, Latin.

Social skills and competences
Closeness to people since I was child due to team sports and summer works in the touristic field permitted me to develop a good attitude in public relations and communication. Laboratory activity and the experience in CGS S.p.A. taughtme how to work in a technical team, respecting the hierarchies. Moreover the REXUS program represented for me an opportunity to work in a multicultural environment and to improve my communication skills thanks to the presentations and the discussions held during the project milestones.
Organizational skills and competences
The experience in CGS S.p.A. improved my attitude in team-working, as well as my ability to work without a direct supervision.
Technical skills and competences
Software: Matlab: excellent; Simulink: good; Catia: basic; Office: Word, Excel, Power Point, Front Page: excellent; Labview: basic.
Competence in building solar arrays for University microsatellites.
Laboratory mechanical and electronic activity competence.
Experience of a vibration test at ESA-ESTEC facilities for the REXUS program.
Artistic skills and competences
Good writing skills, developed during my early studies. Miniatures painting.
Other skills and competences
Good team working ability, together with excellent autonomy and independence.
Italian driving license B (cars).
