    Mechanical Engineer


    Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a graduating thesis on “Development of a Robotics System for the Analysis of Deformations on Artistic Masterpieces, using Laser Triangulation''.

    My principal Interests are Industrial/Aerospace Measurements and Design.

    I have studied at the Pace University (NYC), where I obtained two permanent academic records on computer science, summer courses in 2008 and 2010.

    In my first job opportunity I worked in the Space Solution and Testing Laboratory of Sapienza Univ. of Roma, where I collaborated on the characterization of Kevlar components for Martian environment, and other composite materials.

    At the end of this really important and formative experience I caught the opportunity to spend 9 months at the DSL of the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering as Design-and Test Engineer. This choice gave me the opportunity to work in an international contest. The work was focused on the biomimetic robotics research sector with the aid of the Rapid Prototyping technology.

    The PhD field is Industrial Measurements, and the main project is about the Design, Manufacturing and Testing of a Wearable Exoskeleton for children rehabilitation, using rapid prototyping technologies.

    Other projects have for subject the Design and Testing of 3D printed ABS/Carbon Fiber orthosis (Grant of Sapienza University of Roma, Italy), and the Design and rapid prototyping of mobile forensics devices (PACE University, NYC, US).

    To improve my other interest in Quality Supplier and R&D Management, I'm enrolled at the Second Level Master in Open Innovation and Intellectual Property at LUISS Business School of Roma.

    I like to travel and work on an international basis, especially Northern Europe, USA and Australia.
