    WORK EXPERIENCE

    Three-month internship at Tohoku University’s Space Robotics Laboratory in Sendai (Japan), designing a wireless communication system for swarm intelligent robots based on LTE technology, under the supervision of Prof. Kazuya Yoshida. This system represents a testbed for further research and implementation on groups of multiple rovers for lunar exploration. During this experience, I used C, C++ and Python to program a SolidRun HummingBoard Edge platform. A final report was elaborated and presented to ISU faculty.

    May 2016 – August 2016 

     

    Six-month traineeship at European Space Astronomy Center (ESAC), in Madrid (Spain). The project, supervised by Dr. Erik Kuulkers and Dr. Celia Sanchez, had the objective of detecting superbursts and intermediate duration bursts among hundreds of “candidates”, by performing temporal and spectral analysis of INTEGRAL data collected from several X-ray binary stars. During the traineeship, I made wide use of IDL and Linux.

    July 2014 – December 2014

     

    Six-month internship at National Institute for Astrophysics/Istituto di Astrofisica Spaziale e Fisica Cosmica (INAF/IASF) in Palermo (Italy), working on spectral and temporal analysis of the binary stars’ system XB 1746-371, with Dr. Teresa Mineo as Tutor. Thanks to this placement, I improved my skills in Linux, LateX and XRONOS tools, and learned how to    approach to astrophysics research. A final report was elaborated.

    May 2011 – October 2011

     

    Two-weeks internship at Observatoire de Paris (France), studying the     distribution of neutral hydrogen in the Milky Way and making observations using SALSA radio telescopes, located at the Onsala Observatory in Sweden and controlled via Internet. By means of spectral analysis and Excel’s calculation tools, I determined the position of gas clouds observed in the galaxy plane. A final report was elaborated.

    OTHER DATA AND EXPERIENCE

    During my internship at Tohoku University, I joined the Hakuto Team of the Space Robotics Laboratory, managed and operated by Ispace, a startup company founded by Takeshi Hakamada and Prof. Kazuya Yoshida. The objective of the team is to build a robot for the XPRIZE competition, which consists in sending a robot to the Moon and making it travel a minimum of 500 meters and transmit images and videos of the lunar surface back to Earth.                 (2016)

     

    I attended the Tohoku University Engineering Summer Program (TESP) 2016, a two-week program which provided a series of lectures and hands-on activities on advanced topics of robotics engineering.       (2016)

     

    I participated in the ISU/ENSIEE Robotics Competition at the ISU campus organized by Prof. Kazuya Yoshida and Prof. Hugh Hill. Together with the members of my group, I built a small robot using a Lego Mindstorms NXT kit, which provides a complete set of tools for constructing and programming robots for any basic use.        (2016)

     

    I contributed to a video produced for the EU-funded Space Awareness initiative and aimed at encouraging teenagers to pursue careers in the Space sector. 

    See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn_9S5Ex1HU&feature=youtu.be       (2016)

     

    I took part in the ISU Team Project “SEDNA”, concerning planetary protection in missions to icy moons and sponsored by NASA. At the end of this project, a white paper was produced by the whole team, and it will be presented at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Guadalajara (Mexico) on September 2016.              (2015 - 2016)

     

    My Individual Project at ISU consisted in designing a life science experiment to be performed on board the International Space Station using a NanoRack unit and was carried on in cooperation with Dr. Peter Kern, Dr. Christian Bruderrek and Ms. Anna Grinberg, experts from Airbus Defence & Space center located in Friedrichshafen (Germany).           (2015 - 2016)

     

    My bachelor thesis work, supervised by Dr. Rosario Iaria, Dr. Tiziana Di Salvo and Prof. Luciano Burderi, consisted in studying the dipping activity of the X-ray binary system XB 1746-371. The aim was to estimate the orbital period of the source by mean of the “timing” technique, based on the analysis of the light curves’ trend.                   (2013)

     

    I made some extra-curricular experiences in France, USA and Italy, working as a restaurant employee at Disneyland Paris, SPA receptionist in Melbourne (Florida) and coordinator in Palermo respectively. All these experiences improved my communication skills, as well as my ability to work under pressure and prioritize different tasks. Also, living abroad allowed me to improve my proficiency in foreign languages.                      (2012 - 2014)
