NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    Arpsoft s.r.l.
    Rome, Italy
    Expert in Deep Space Tracking Systems
    Mar ’13 – Present
     
    Arpsoft is a company based on years of experience consolidated at prestigious italian and foreign institutes (Sapienza University of Rome, INAF, JPL). Its expertise is focused on space fields like navigation and orbit determination, radio science, interferometric deep space tracking techniques and signal processing. During my experience at Arspsoft I’ve taken part in a feasibility study commissioned by ESA, to assess the benefits, in terms of data volume return in Ka-band, coming from the use of radio-meteorological data and statistical optimization in space telecommunications. ESA’s BepiColombo mission has been taken as the reference mission for the study in terms of mission profile and mission operations. My contribution consists in implementing a new optimization tool for radio links in Ka-band, capable of ingesting weather forecast data, in terms of attenuation and associated probability distribution function. The tool will be used by ESA for mission planning and computation of the total data volume using the new analysis mode.
     
    Sapienza University of Rome
    Rome, Italy
    Research Fellow and PhD student in Aeronautical and Space Technology
    Nov ’11 – Present
    Radio Science Laboratory, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
     
    During my PhD a great deal of my research has focused on the determination of the gravity field of Saturn’s icy satellites by means of precise Doppler tracking of the Cassini spacecraft. The activity entails the analysis of RS gravity data collected during several flybys of Saturn’s moons Enceladus and Rhea, using space-quilified software. I’ve had to deal with calibration of non-gravitational accelerations, Saturn satellite ephemeris update and implementation of a multi-arc analysis method.
    I’ve carried out extensive numerical simulations of the radio science experiment on-board the JUICE mission to the Jupiter system, which represent the main topic of my dissertation. The activity entails: characterization of the dynamical environment (gravitational and non-gravitational forces, spacecraft modeling), assessment of the accuracies attainable in the estimation of the gravity field of Jupiter’s icy satellites, the development of dedicated software for the measurements of Ganymede’s and Callisto’s tidal distortions, precise spacecraft positioning for applications in laser altimetry.
     
    Weizmann Institute of Science
    Rehovot, Israel
    Visiting Scientist
    Nov ’13 – Mar ’14
    Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences
     
    During my visit at Weizmann Institute of Science I’ve worked, in collaboration with Dr. Yohai Kaspi, on a number of projects mainly concerning the Juno gravity experiment. My work has focused on the development of a 3-D model for Jupiter’s deep wind structure based on an anelastic general circulation model and the assessment of the impact on the scientific return of the experiment of gravity anomalies caused by Jupiter’s atmospheric dynamics. I’ve alsoworked as a consultant on the radio science experiment of ESA’s JUICE mission, in the matter of radio occultations, for the retrieval of vertical density, pressure and temperature profiles in Jupiter’s neutral atmosphere.
