    WORK EXPERIENCE

               I teach piano and complementary subjects both at home and sometimes in private schools as supply teacher.

     

           OCTOBER 2016 MAY 2017: Visiting Student at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA

    Activities: -   Develop a tool with high level language MATLAB to evaluate the regression rate of the fuel and the performance of a hybrid propulsion system for interplanetary CubeSats.

    -   Perform a thermal modeling in order to derive temperatures inside the combustion chamber and their distribution. After that, evaluate thermal and pressure stresses and verify if adopted materials can withstand them. Consider then different configurations to see changes in thermal behavior during the combustion process for a range of motor designs.

    -   Participate in running tests and updating the hybrid test facility.

     

       2010: Stage at Assicurazioni Generali in Rivarolo Canavese (TO), store activities and customer phone support.

    Participation  as speaker  in the conference  “L’Italia,  lo spazio ed il futuro: studenti  ed ingegneri  all’opera”,  Politecnico di Torino, May 2016.
    During this conference, it was talking about ExoMars and the Italian contribution. The second part was dedicated to the presentation of students’ work on a topic of interest.

     

    Topic speech: “Punti Lagrangiani e traiettorie Lissajous”, that dealt with the Lagrangian points and the orbits related to them, with focus on the main missions carried out to these points.

     

    Partecipation as speaker in the 7th European Conference for Aeronautics and Space Sciences (EUCASS), Politecnico di Milano, July 2017.

    Main objectives of this conference are the review of the state of the art in Aeronautics and Space Sciences, focusing on promising
    innovations and the promotion of industrial understanding of recent scientific breakthroughs and the development of synergies between
    Aeronautics and Space, Academia and Industry.

     

    Topic speech: “Thermal analysis of a hybrid rocket propulsion system for interplanetary CubeSats”, that presents results of thermal analysis performed on a GOX/PMMA hybrid rocket motor for a CubeSat application. Temperature profile and stresses inside the fuel grain were evaluated and changes adding devices to improve performance were investigated.
