EDUCATION AND TRAINING
2009 - 2012
Master Degree in Space Engineering, Università ‘La Sapienza’, Rome, Italy
Specialisation in Structural Analysis and Costing of Satellites and Platforms
Grade: 108/110 (2.1 equivalent)
Subjects studied included:
• Structural Dynamics,
• Space attitude and systems,
• Solid and Liquid Propellant Rockets,
• Electric thruster,
• Space Materials,
• Problems in Thermal Structures,
• Satellite Communication Systems
Thesis developed on “Structural analysis and cost analysis of multipayload adapter VESPA (Vega Secondary Payload Adapter)”
As part of the thesis, two models of VESPA were manufactured: the first in composite material, the second using an aluminium alloy. An FEM structural analysis and a PRICE-H cost analysis were performed on both models. The results of such technical and economic evaluations allow the creation of new configurations of multi-payload in order to optimize design, functionality and cost.
Sept 2011 - July 2012
ESA - ESRIN, Centre for Earth Observation, Frascati, Rome, Italy - Trainee
Development of a technical and economic assessment of the multipayload adapter Vespa.
This device will be used in future missions of the VEGA launcher.
Developed excellent organisational and inter-personal skills. Entrusted with the use and analysis of confidential data. Demonstrated the utmost reliability and trustworthiness.
PEGASUS Certificate, Università ‘La Sapienza’, Rome, Italy
Document certifying that the student has successfully completed a prescribed programme of study providing the skills required to operate as an Engineer in the Aeronautics and Aerospace industries
2004 - 2008
Bachelor Degree in Aerospace Engineering, Università ‘La Sapienza’, Rome, Italy
Subjects studied included:
• Mission analysis of the aero-assisted maneuvers;
• Description of electric propulsion and related missions developed;
• Study of optimal trajectories for interplanetary transfer (Earth-Mars);
• Aero-assisted maneuvres and setting of the problem for aerobraking maneuvers.
Thesis developed on “Optimisation of trajectories” regarding the Earth-Mars interplanetary transfer for a probe equipped with a non-conventional propulsion system consisting of the combination of an electric engine and a solar sail. The thesis’ findings allow to estimate the theoretical improvements that a hybrid propulsion system offers over an electric-only propulsion system such as that used on SMART-1.
