    CV

    I graduated in Physics in 2012 (Astrophysics and Cosmology) from Bologna University with a thesis on the optical effects of the stellar ‘crowding’,  with Monte Carlo simulations of stellar populations, in order to retrieve information on the stellar content of an image.

    I completed (January 2015) a postgraduate Master’s degree program in Satellite Science and Technology at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. The Program is meant to give a strong background in current topics and technologies related to Space exploration and exploitation.

    Within the Master’s degree Program, I have completed my Stage at SERCO s.p.a, working with ESA on the End-to-End simulator of the ALADIN’s Doppler Lidar instrument on board the ESA/Aeolus Mission. During my Stage, I have also worked on the on the re-entry data from of the magnetometers onboard on the ESA  GOCE Mission, for which I will provide and characterize a new data product with magnetic data for the whole Mission. These data will constitute a unique dataset given the extremely low-orbit (250 km) that GOCE has been flying into.

    I have hands-on experience in Optics, Spectroscopy, Photometry, Data Analysis, Data Reduction, Instrument characterization.

    My Bachelor thesis was on asteroids, giving a description of physical and chemical characteristics, and a trainee study on cryo-volcanism phenomena in the Solar System (both carried out at the Department of Astronomy, Bologna).

     

     

    SKILLS: 

    Data Analysis, Optical Data Reduction (bias correction, dark image, flat field).

    IT skills

    Programming languages: C++, Fortran, MatLab, SuperMongo, BASH programming.

    OS: Linux, Windows, Mac.

    Tools and Softwares: System Tool Kit (STK), Microsoft Office, Open Office, 

    Languages:

    Mother Language: Italian;

    Other languages:

    - English (advanced); 

    - German (good); 

    - French (fair).

    Team Work: I improved greatly this skill in my experience in SERCO s.p.a. as trainee, during which I worked together with the ESA ADM-Aeolus team.

    Communication: I developed this skill in University in reporting studies to colleagues and professors. I improved it during the Master STS thanks to courses in Communication and Management. In the experience in Serco s.p.a., I used communication skill to explain progress about the assigned work. I have also collaborated with school teachers in giving lessons of astronomy to young students.

    Organization: Self-scheduling of work (in my trainee experience) and of study (during my student’s career) in order to respect deadlines.

    Project Management: inside the Master STS, courses of Management gave me the basis of Project Management and Risk Management, applied to space projects.
