     Date available:>3months
     Industry:Civil Agencies/International Organizations, Satellite Manufacturers and Subcontractors, Satellite Operators, , , Consulting/Engineering Services, Space Tourism
     KeywordsRadiation, ECLS and Thermal engineer


    I am a young nuclear engineer graduated at Università degli Studi di Palermo, Italy. Now I am attending a Specializing Master in Space Exploration and Developments Systems. Due to my studies, I am willing to work in the space sector as a radiation engineer both for radiation protection of human and for electronic components. Furthermore, I am also interested to become a Radiation Protection Advisor  for ground application.


    March, 2015 – In progress / Internship at Thales Alenia Space: First phase of Master SEEDS’ Project Work

    I am attending an intership at Thales Alenia Space Italia for the Specializing Master in Space Exploration and Development Systems The aim of the internship is to design the pre-phase A of a human mission to Mars, and in particular an orbiting station around Mars, plus two spaceships to ascent and descent from Mars. At the beginning, my role involved the definition of the mission, performing functional analysis of the system, the concept of operations and drafting of requirements. Now, I am dealing with ECLS system of the orbiting station. I have performed analysis of the logistic needs of food, water and air, a trade-off to determine the closure of the loop and then an evaluation of different technologies of the system. In addition, I have performed analysis of the radiation shielding, considering the utilization of consumables of the station as food and water.
