    Personal Profile

    A motivated, proactive and experienced System Engineer with proven expertise a wide range of space projects, both in early design (A/B1) and implementation phases (B2/C/D).
    During my career I have well performed in all key tasks of system engineering, with focus on the Space Segment, such as requirement analysis, architectural design and trade-offs, maintenance of technical budgets and verification (AIV) management. In particular in the domain of telecommunication spacecrafts, I have also supported the majority of lower level reviews (subsystem and unit level) in the area of justification of the design, assessment of deviations and verification. Furthermore I have contributed to several system and subsystem level reviews, gaining experience in interacting with customer’s and supplier's representatives in a constructive way.   
    Additionally, I have highly trained interpersonal and communication skills, with strong motivation in working in a diverse and international team environment and a natural attitude in training of junior engineers. My approach to work is methodical and customer-focused, with a strong drive to see things through to completion, complemented by sophisticated analytical abilities, a problem-solving attitude and capability to implement innovation.
    Thanks to many years of working experience in the Space Industry as system engineer, I have acquired a wide knowledge about all main spacecraft's subsystems and equipment, and the expertise to coordinate the work of a technical team through the whole process of design, development, integration and verification of a Space System.
