    CV

    SUMMARY 

    Marialaura pursued her M.Sc. in Astronautical Engineering in October 2015 at Sapienza University of Rome with a thesis on analytical-experimental study of the manufacturing process of nanostructured films on Mylar substrate by spin-coating. She is PhD student at Sapienza University of Rome, working on the design and the development of highly conductive layers for Space environment and on the study of carbon-based nanocomposite coatings to detect UV and mechanical damage, to be applied to composite materials for aerospace applications. Although the experience is focused on aerospace studies, Marialaura is interested to all fields of industrial engineering.
