    Telecommunication Engineer

    Personal profile

    I am a young (25), highly motivated Italian Engineer, aiming to live a professional experience in a great country abroad.

    Almost one year ago, I have received the Master of Science degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Padova (Italy). The essential exams have been: Telecommunication Networks, Digital Signal Processing, Digital Transmission, Wireless Communications, Satellite Communication/Navigation, Network Security, Signal Propagtion and Antennas.

    I like keeping me updated about improvements in various communication technologies, but my main interests are the Global Navigation (GNSS). 

    In the last year (initially as thesis student, afterwards as assistant research), I have been focused on the urgent and challenging problem of ensuring authentication and cryptographic integrity protection to the Open Service GNSS signal. This activity has let me to mature a good expertise in Information Security (especially source authentication) and Satellite Navigation peculiarities. By working on security for critical infrastructures, like GNSS, I have improved my critical-sense and problem-solving capabilities. Through the editing of papers and technical note for the customer, I have learned to technically present problem and solutions. Since I am joining a small group everyone has to work hard. Furthermore, team-working with tasks subdivision or substitution are usual, and priorities management is essential. Therefore, I have to be well-organized, especially because I like have time for taking care of details. Nevertheless, I have also had to mature a discrete autonomous working skill.
    Finally, this year by several opportunities (public speech at meetings, teleconference, editing documents) has let me to achieve a full-professional English level. 

    In my job and outside it, I am used to be self-confident, fair with others, good-listener and friendly.
    I would be glad to apply, and grow by knowledges by joining a group of heterogeneous experts (e.g. with different specialization/age/gender), focused on challenging problems, preferably if related with Navigation, Transport, Security, Safety-Of-Life or Defense domains.

    Work experience

    Research Assistant                                                    Jan. 2016 – present

    Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy) - Department of Information Engineering (DEI)
    The research activity is focused within two projects, which aim to study authentication techniques for GNSS Open Service signal, and the feasibility of SBAS data authentication.

    Job duties:

    Due to the job context, and the small number of members, the tasks are various. I am involved in the study, and design of authentication mechanisms for the European GNSS and SBAS signals. The daily duties vary from targeting the problems (e.g. potential attacks), reviewing existing literature, designing ad-hoc solutions; to simulate (mainly through Matlab) either attacks or solutions, and technically report (e.g. in form of academic papers, or project deliverable documents) design drivers, and effective proposal implementations.


    MSc in Telecommunication Engineering                                                 Oct. 2013-Nov. 2015
    Università degli Studi di Padova, (Italy)
    Final mark: 110/110 with honors
    Thesis title: “Unconditionally Secure Authentication and Integrity Protection for the Galileo Open Service Signal”

    BSc in Information Engineering                                                             Oct 2010 -Sept. 2013
    Università degli Studi di Padova, (Italy)
    Final mark: 100/110
    Thesis title: “Design of a digital FIR filter for BCI applications”

    IT proficiency

    - Matlab: intermediate level, it is the main simulation tool in my current job;
    - Java: student level (I have the concept of object oriented approach);
    - C: beginner level, but I am simulating a GNSS signal generator (specialized for Galileo) for a specific receiver position simulator. Thus, I am improving my knowledges upon the language;
    - Latex & Beamer: good knowledges, since they are the primary editing tools for my everyday job activities;
    - SVN repositories: in my current job we usually work on common projects/documents by sharing them on SVN repositories;
    - Linux/Ubuntu: sometimes I have batch commands for testing or setting networks node (e.g. routers) and parameters (e.g. IP addresses);

    Languages proficiency

    Italian: native speaker;
    English: full-professional level;
    Spanish: discrete level in everyday speech, basic in technical explanations. I have learned it during my 5-months Erasmus experience in Madrdi;
    German: scholar level;
