As a Materials Scientist, I have a strong experimental background both on physics and chemistry field; at the end of my academic career, I decided to study Materials Science applied in the aero-space field and I expanded my expertise with software programming and Monte Carlo simulations for particle interactions.
I have been working within the field of Space Radiation Protection, employing my technical knowledge and versatility on programs and projects in an international contests and internal R&D studies.
June 2019 – Februay 2020: Fellowship at Thales Alenia Space Italia – Radiation and Debris Unit. I work in the Radiation Team at Turin (Italy), studying and developing passive shielding solutions to protect astronauts and space systems from the effects of the space radiation environment. Responsible for simulation and for the materials research of R&D ESA ROSSINI3 study and HITL (Human in the Loop) project. Radiation analyst using both sectoring analysis tools (i.e. Fastrad) and Monte Carlo simulation codes (e.g. PHITS, Geant4).
November 2018 – May 2019: Graduate Internship at Thales Alenia Space Italia– Radiation and Debris Unit. I worked in the Radiation Team at Turin (Italy), modeling the solar and cosmic radiation transport through matter, using Monte Carlo codes PHITS and Geant4. Plasma modeling using SPIS code and studying UV-atomic oxygen effects on materials.
Projects of interest I have been working on as technical person
January 2020 – Februay 2020: HITL [Human in the Loop]: ESA funded study on the design of a Human Landing Stack able to bring astronauts on the Moon and back to the future Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway (LOP-G). Performed activities: Support on the design of solutions able to shield astronauts against Solar Particle Events, Study the effects of plasma and dusty plasma on the mission, Review of spacesuit materials.
June 2019 – Februay 2020: ROSSINI 3 [Radiation Shielding by ISRU (In-Situ Resource Utilization) and/or Innovative Materials for EVA, Vehicle and Habitat] ESA ROSSINI study continuation. This is an European Space Agency (ESA) funded R&D activity on passive space radiation shielding for human missions, whose goals are to review radiation shielding materials for EVA, vehicles and habitats in human spaceflight missions, including In-Situ Resources Utilization (ISRU) and innovative materials; improvement and benchmark of existing MC and deterministic codes; experimental campaigns using high energy ions to study shielding properties of materials and interaction cross sections to benchmark MC and deterministic codes. Performed activities: Geant4/GRAS and PHITS Monte Carlo simulations, Monte Carlo Cross sections review, Implementation of a new tool to calculate doses on human organs in different scenario (eg. Moon surface and Deep Space), follow-up of the manufacturing and characterization of innovative materials performed by a subcontractor team.
February 2019 – April 2019: LISA [Laser Interferometer Space Antenna]: ESA mission whose aim is to study gravitational waves in space. Performed activities: Monte Carlo Internal charging analysis on sensitive elements, Ray-tracing simulation of doses levels on components of the satellite.
February 2019 – May 2019: R&D: Thales Alenia Space Italia R&D project on radiation effects on materials for innovative window assemblies in different scenario (LEO, Deep Space). Performed activities: Trade-off support, MC Geant4/GRAS radiation simulations, UV damage review, Atomic oxygen erosion calculation.
January 2018 – September 2018: Undergraduate internship at Thales Alenia Space Italia, Turin (Italy), Radiation and Debris Unit. I worked on the Master’s Degree Thesis, modeling radiation transport in matter with electric fields for radiation shielding in space application.
October 2016 – October 2018: Master degree in Materials Science, at University of Turin, entirely in English, with the thesis “Ferroelectric materials for radiation shielding in space”. Marks: 110/110 cum laude.
October 2013 - July 2016: Bachelor’s degree in Science and Technology of Materials, University of Turin, with the experimental thesis “Feasibility study of spintronic devices based on the spin transfer torque effect”, performed at National Institute for Metrological Research (INRiM) in Turin, Italy. Marks: 110/110 cum laude.
July 2013: High school diploma, Technical Institute A. Avogadro in Torino (Italy). Marks: 100/100. Scientific high school specialization in informatics.
Monte Carlo codes (Geant4, PHITS), Radiation tools (FASTRAD, SPIS, SPENVIS), Data analysis (Root Data Analysis, Origin), Programming language (Python, C/C++), Operating system (Microsoft Windows, Linux), Microsoft Office, CAD software (SpaceClaim)
Italian: native language
English: fluent (FIRST Certificate)
Very good communication and relational skills developed both at university with group projects, private lessons and in the company where I attended teleconferences and team project meetings. Indeed, the Master Degree course was entirely in English, in a highly dynamic and international environment with both students and researchers of other countries; moreover, at Thales Alenia Space, I had the opportunity to work in international teams (especially for ROSSINI3 project) and with people coming from different background and proficiencies. In these contexts, I acquired a very good team working ability and a clear and concise speaking, providing my knowledge and ideas to the others in a precise and constructive way.
Organisational / managerial skills
Very good ability at work independently, acquired during my thesis periods and developed during my time in the company, where I worked autonomously, providing results and progresses to my superiors periodically.
Moreover, the team where I worked at Thales Alenia Space is involved into a lot of different projects related to space systems, therefore I developed very good skills in organizing my work respecting schedules, becoming able to deal with different tasks at the same time. I was also proactive into improve my own proficiency in sectors unknown for me.
Finally, I improved my managerial skills following the work performed by a subcontractor team for ROSSINI3 project, organizing weekly meetings and teleconferences to update the rest of the team with the progresses.
