    Researches and Projects:

    - Thesis of master degree in Aerospace Engineering: “Preliminary design of low-thrust space missions toward Lyapunov vertical orbits”, University of Pisa, work in collaboration with the aerospace company Alta SpA in Pisa, 2011. This work deals with the Circular Restricted Three Body Problem in the contest of space mission design both for operative orbits and transfer trajectories. It also studies the combination of the three body problem manifolds dynamic and low-thrust transfer strategies. A preliminary approach to the optimization problem of the low-thrust transfer trajectory has been considered and its solution has been computed using the direct multiple shooting method.

    - Thesis of bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering: “Performances description and analysis of the principal space launch vehicles”, University of Pisa, work in collaboration with the aerospace laboratory Centrospazio in Pisa, 2007.

    - C.Finocchietti, D. Bertocchini, “Design of a mechanical lifter for an industrial varnish tank”, University of Pisa, 2009. Mechanical project realized during the Machine Design course of the Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering.
