DUCATI-CORSE, 1/2009 - 8/2009
The main activity was the set-up optimization, by using a Ducati-Corse homemade multi-body code and a commercial multi-objective optimization software, and the development of the motorbike for the 2010 motoGP motorbike. I carried out side activities, like data analysis and improving Matlab code for motoGP and superbike championship software.
