    Professional Summary

    A well-educated graduate aerospace engineer with an outstanding academic record, I am currently working as electric propulsion research engineer at SITAEL S.p.A, the largest Italian privately owned company operating in the aerospace field. During my university studies and the early stages of my career I have developed the ability to face head on a wide range of different problems and situations. Experience gained at work, during my education and my involvement in sport have taught me the importance of teamwork in the achievement of any common goal. I would define myself as reliablehardworkingself-motivated, and desirous to learn. My primary professional interest is space propulsion and I aspire to become aSpace Propulsion System Engineer in a world leading aerospace company, a role where I can contribute to the realization of large and challenging programs for the upstream space market.

    Career History

    May 2015 – Present

    SITAEL S.p.A., Space Propulsion BU.

    Electric Propulsion Research Engineer.

    SITAEL S.p.A recruited me to this role straight after University. I am currently working within the Electric Propulsion Division of SITAEL and I am involved in the development, design and testing of high power Hall Effect Thrusters for space application. In particular, I am involved with four projects commissioned by ESA. They are as follows:

    ·  Development of a Low-Erosion Long-Life Hall Thruster;

    ·  Identification, evaluation and testing of alternative propellant for electric propulsion system;

    ·  Development of a very high power Hall Thruster (20kW) for space exploration;

    ·  Assessment of the key aerothermodynamics elements for the realization of a ram-EP concept.

    Key Responsibilities & Achievements:

    ·  Magnetic, mechanical and thermal design & analysis of high power Hall Effect Thrusters;

    ·  The theoretical modelling of the plasma dynamics inside Hall thrusters;

    ·  Design of a plasma diagnostic system with the purpose of measuring plasma properties inside the thruster;

    ·  Diligently providing technical documentation including definition of requirements, test plans and procedures;

    ·  Effective communication and interaction with customers and suppliers.

    Education

    In the frame of my Master thesis project I joined the electric propulsion research team of SITAEL S.p.A. I co-developed a one-dimensional model of a Hall Effect Thruster, and validated against the experimental data gathered for the SITAEL’s HT5k Hall thruster with remarkable results. This work was presented at the 34th Electric Propulsion Conference (IEPC) held in Kobe, Japan and at the 6th European Conference for Aeronautics and Space Sciences (EUCASS) held in Krakow, Poland

    Interests

    Model Rocketry- This is a new interest developed in the last few years and tied with a university project. In the framework of this project, we built (in a team of 3) a high power amateur rocket with an apogee altitude of about 1000 meters.

    Football-I have played football since I was 6 years old. Over the years, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of different kind of people and to understand the importance of teamwork.
