    RESUME

    To whom it may concern,

    I am an Italian Satellite Application Engineer. My work is driven by the passion for the complexity of the Earth system. I am firmly convinced that a better comprehension of its phenomena can only be achieved by a joint effort of different expertises. My main interest concerns the usage of data from Remote Sensing, which has provided the scientific community with a various and extensive set of information that can be used to interpret and model the reality.

    I am writing because I am in search of a job experience that involves the analysis of data that are currently available from the satellites and more in general the earth observation systems. I already had research experiences in the storage and manipulation of ARGO data as well as remote sensing data from altimetry missions (ENVISAT, JASON, TOPEX). Moreover I have worked with other kinds of satellite data from gravimetry missions (GRACE) and SAR images.

    The path that I have been following in my studies reflects my interests. I have obtained two Master Degrees, both focussed on climate change. The Master Degree in Environmental Studies at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, which I have just concluded, has given me an overview of the causes and consequences of human activities, on the cycles and the interactions between land, atmosphere and ocean, as well as an insight on the climate drivers and the variability of the past.

    In MunichI attended the international Master Degree in Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE), and I specialised in Earth Science. I had several courses on Remote Sensing, Image Processing, Estimation Theory, Computer Modelling, Oceanography and Climate Dynamics, among the others.

    My master thesis about sea level fluctuations in Mediterranean Seabased on ARGO observations got the maximum score and has been published on the March 2011 issue of "Bollettino di Geofisica Applicata, An International Journal of Earth Sciences".

    My background is strongly connected with fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, statistics, numerical analysis, mathematics, computer science, and physics, coming from the bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, a highly competitive university in which only the 50% of the students enrolled in the first year complete their studies. During those years I have improved my interest in computer modelling by laboratory experiences such as modelling Navier-Stokes equations through finite elements in a MATLAB environment.

    An international working environment is something I am already used to, since the Masters I attended were both international projects, entirely taught in English. I am used to present, write articles and share information with the scientific community in English; I presented the Master Thesis from Munichin Karlsruhe, during the “Geodatische Woche” and last April I presented a research about ocean acidification at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Wien.

    I have lived in three countries (I can also speak Spanish and German) and travelled in several countries around the world, so English is also the language I use everyday to communicate with my friends.
