    I carried out a period of research for the master’s degree thesis as winner of a scholarship provided bySapienza University of Rome. My activity, conducted at MauriceJ.Zucrow laboratories, has been focused on an experimental campaign in the field of liquid propellant rocket propulsion. In particular I worked on an experiment called Methane Thermal Properties Breadboard, designed and produced as part of the Hyprobprogram by theItalian Aerospace Research Centre, in order to investigatethe properties of super critical methane as coolant of liquid propellant rocket thrust chambers.

    Social and organisational skills

    I have a good ability to cooperate in a team in order to plan activities and solve problems. I gained this competence through different team works organized by professors of aerospace engineering at Sapienza University of Rome. The team works included also the conceptual design of a spacecraft and its mission in collaboration with experts from Brown University. 


    Computer and technical skills

    Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Matlab, Fortran, Catia, Adina, MSC Nastran, MSC Adams, ANSYS Fluent, REFPROP, CEA.


    I have a fairly good experience working on experimental apparatuses for the analysis of rocket propulsion systems. I took part in several tests of experimental rocket engines and components, developed for the study of high frequency longitudinal combustion instabilities or the investigation of cooling systems heat transfer capabilities. In this way I gained some knowledge about the installation, management and control procedures of test articles. I have also known the fundamental liquefaction techniques of cryogenic propellants and the main data measurement and acquisition strategies. I obtained these skills during my stay at the aerospace propulsion laboratories of Purdue University.
