    Main activities and responsibilities

    It was my work to manage the quality assurance process oriented to international qualifications achievement, according to UNI-ISO, BAC but above all ASTM standards requirements. I performed salt spray fog tests to check the conformity of chemical processes for corrosion protection with the quality specifications. I also studied in depth some real cases of corrosion detected during visual inspection on aircraft and, through metallographic analysis, I was able to define the kind of corrosion which the examined structure (mainly aluminium alloy) had been affected by.

    Personal skills and competences




    Language skills


    Mother tongue


    Other language(s)

    English, Swedish, German



    Social skills and competences

    Good communication skills, both written and oral. I can relate well with people of different nationalities and cultures, due to my work and university experience.

    Positive, thorough, willing and quick to learn.



    Organizational skills and competences

    Good predisposition to team working and problem solving.

    Good aptitude to research of new solutions to meet the client and improve the product.



    Technical skills and competences

    Due to the experience gained in the editing of high level RAMS analyses, based on the technical documentation related to the systems and deeply to single components, i am able to perform:

    - Reliability Analysis

    - Functional and hardware FMECA/FMEA/FMES

    - Maintainability and Testability Analysis

    - RCM (Reliability Centred Maintenance) Analysis

    - Safety Analysis

    - Troubleshooting procedure

    according to the above mentioned standards for both aircraft and space applications.

    Extensive knowledge of ISO 9000, ISO 9001 and ISO 19011 quality standards.

    During my stage experience i gained some knowledge of UNI-ISO and ASTM standards and some experience in NADCAP qualification. Using the related standards I defined whether the employment of heat and chemical treatments is useful to improve the quality features of aeronautic materials, with a particular interest on aluminium alloys and their behaviour in highly oxidizing environments.

    I am able to give a preliminary estimate of the possible fracture’s reason of a component realized in aluminium alloy due to visual inspection, metallographic analysis and non-destructive controls.



    Computer skills and competences

    Operating Systems:  Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7

    Word processing, spreadsheet, presentation: MS Office, OpenOffice
