    Low Thrust Hall Effect Thruster Demonstration (Space System Course)

    The project involved a team of different nationalities and aimed to design a space mission to test and qualify an Hall Effect Thruster; The mission plan and the spacecraft were designed from scratch in all their features.


    European Robotic Arm Analysis (Spacecraft Structures and Mechanisms Course)

    The project scope was to redesign the ERA (European Robotic Arm), to do such the arm was recreated with DSS-Catia and the launch and operating loads were simulated with Ansys, the gear enabling ERA movements were redesigned and the motion analyzed using Matlab.


    Other Activities:

    Sant’Anna Business Game        (November 2016)

    I was one of the 60 students selected in the whole EU to participate in this 2-days event. I faced real-life business challenges on organizational strategies and operational management with 3-4 people teams, prepared and evaluated by some major companies (Avio Aero, Microsoft, Enel, Redbull, Ericcson, etc.).

    This experience widened my understanding of teamwork and tested my problem solving skills.

    My team and I won the Microsoft challenge and we had the chance to show our project to the Microsoft American representatives.


    External consultant  for Franco Russoli High School         (June 2017)
