    Date of birth:

    Place of birth:

    Agropoli (Italy)

    Legal Status:



    I have a deep passion for Technology and in particular for Mechanics, tests and simulations.

    I like to learn and understand how real systems work in actual situations by means of S/Ws based simulations that I accomplished to perform with e.g. the MATLAB/Simulink S/W suite, in which I am constantly improving my knowledge. I like to build Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) too and I am also focused in making them more user-friendly as possible.

    I always do my best to improve myself and it gives me much motivation to accomplish my work and find great solutions for complex tasks. I consider myself adaptive, communicative and a team player. During my previous work experiences I succeeded to easily adapt with my colleagues from other countries and commonly we reached our goals by delivering the work to the Clients and constantly fulfilling their expectations. I am a very result-oriented person and I like to build positive relationships thanks also to my brilliant communication skills.



    From 05/2014 - ALTRAN, (Aerospace Infrastructure and Transportation Technical Consulting), Eindhoven – The Netherlands

    Junior Consultant

    From 05/2014 – Bosch(NEFIT BV), Deventer – The Netherlands

    External Consultant

    I am currently involved in 2 projects:

    ü  The first project I am working on is about automatic testing of Heating System Appliances. My main responsibilities include software based simulations, in particular MATLAB/Simulink programming and codes debugging/testing. Moreover, I am also involved in database and documentation management and development. My team and I have recently built 2 new functionalities which allow future users to trace the FW code (FSMs) and estimate how much of it has been covered. This is already fully integrated in the Tool GUI. We have also recently started a project daily Whiteboard virtual session where every component of the team takes note of what is currently working on providing an interactive and productive feedback to the Project Leader.

    ü  The second one is about Combustion Management System and my current task is the tuning of the Ionization Current set-point due to set-point changes and external disturbances (noise, flame instabilities, induced disturbances) present in the control loop. The aim is to find a PID control algorithm which is able to stabilize the system (especially at low Power levels) with a sufficient level of robustness, once some desired performance requirements have been specified. I am concentrating my daily activities in lab tests along with the synthesis of the control algorithm through MATLAB. It translates having an approximated model of the real system in accordance with real measurements.

    From 01/2014 to 04/2014 - Evidence Srl, Pisa (Computer Software)

    Consultant for Honeywell Combustion Control

    ü  Responsible for the mathematical modelization of the main components of an auto adjusting premixed heating system: a Gas Valve, a Venturi Nozzle and a FAN. In particular: Venturi Nozzle mathematical description and modelization (CAD & CFX), Gas Valve mathematical description and modelization, FAN mathematical description, modelization (CAD & CFX) and study of the transients.

    ü  Responsible for the development of the S-Functions describing the System with the S/W MATLAB. Further integration with a Simulink block System.

    ü  Responsible for the CFD Simulations with the S/W CFX of the mini Venturi Nozzle and the FAN.

    ü  Support in the creation of an electronic Control System for combustion control appliance and for the heating system.

    ü  Meetings with the Client to check the mid-term objectives and the status of the work by means of Power Point presentations where the preliminary results have been shown.

    ü  Responsible for the creation of a Final Report with the required Deliverables and Results to be verified with tests at Client’s facilities.



    ü  Evaluation of the pressure drops in the Venturi Nozzle, in the FAN and in the Gas Valve.

    ü  Estimation of the typical System parameters like the Air-Fuel Equivalence Ratio , the FAN Head  and the system pressure drop  when other quantities vary in a predetermined operational range.

    ü  Evaluation of other parameters by mean of a mathematical description of the entire system.

    ü  Presentation and description of alternative solutions.

    ü  Creation of a Control System in order to correctly monitor the desired quantities.
