    Creative, versatile and thorough person, adept at proactive teamwork, able to provide efficient solutions while enhancing a healthy and social work environment. I earned my Ph.D. in Astrophysics after carrying out a very international thesis in research centres from several countries (see Education section below). In this period, I learned and pieced together the technical, observational and theoretical aspects of state-of-the-art astronomical science, focusing on imaging techniques with data from some of the top and most complex observatories of the world.

    Seeking to broaden my background as a research and data scientist in the aerospace industry focussing on astronomical and geophysical missions (both space and ground segments) and related areas. Immediate availability.
