    Curriculum Vitae


    Research Fellowship 2019-2020

    Tor Vergata university of Rome

    I worked for ERFNet, an European Space Agency feasibility project about radiation protection in space. The basic idea was to make simulations in radiations more comfortable for non-expert users, with an optimization algorithm to find the best shielding to protect inside a spacecraft (e.g. crew).

    My activities:

    − Development of the three-dimensional optimization system throughout a metropolis algorithm, using Matlab and Fortran programming languages in Linux and MacOS

    − Simulations with Gate (Geant4 derivate)

    − Data analysis (Matlab)

    − Study and application of GDML (Geometry Description Markup Language)

    − Ray tracing algorithm in Matlab

    − Final testing with compiled Matlab scripts in Windows OS

    The development of a better simulation that optimize dose using an improved ray-tracing algorithm based on Gate tool data is in progress.

    Research Collaboration  2018


    I continued my thesis work on polarization induction by a deformable mirror for the European Solar Telescope, collaborating with adaptive optics team at National Institute of Astrophysics, INAF.

    My activities:

    − Design optical setup with Zemax

    − Positioning and alignment of optical elements

    − Characterization of deformable mirror

    − Measurement and imaging in focal and exit pupil plane

    − Measurement of wavefront aberration (Zernike polynomials)

    − Closed loop Shack-Hartmann and deformable mirror (Induced polynomials and corrections)

    − Polarization’s measurements with a Wollaston prism

    − Data analysis (Matlab, IDL)

    Scientific Communication 2013-2018

    Cutural association ’Estrellas y planetas’, Guido Reni Mostre

    I have worked as scientific communicator for the cultural association ’Estrellas y Planetas’ in the National Astrophyics Institute (INAF in italian acronym) structures and for Guido Reni Mostre in 2017. Here I explained to school age students and adults the basics of astronomy, astrophysics, optics and astronautical history.

    My activities

    − Learned how to explain complex topics to non-expert people, both adults and children, adapting my languages

    − Learned how to manage sudden events, and make rapid decisions

    − Observations with a telescope, finding and following objects in the sky, nighttime and daytime (Sun)


    Master’s degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics 2011-2017

    Università Sapienza di Roma

    I’ve completed my master’s degree discussing my thesis entitled ’Characterization of a MEMS deformable mirror’. In the years of study I learned about astronomy and astrophysics, such as plasma physics, stellar astrophysics, classical gravitational mechanics, and more.


    − Annual laboratory on an optical coronograph, a light source obscurer device to make visible dark objects around

    − Simulation development of an orbiting star around an elliptical galaxy with a non constant matter distribution (written in Fortran)

    − Simulation of n-body gravitational system

    − Computation of interior star’s parameters (Mass, luminosity, temperature, etc.)

    Bachelor’s degree in Physics and Astrophysics 2001-2009

    Sapienza university of Rome

    Here I learned the basics of mathematics and physics, needed for further knowledge, problem solving, working in an experimental context. I experienced also a cryostat’s laboratory. My Dissertation’s title is ’Adaptive Optics: working principles and application’.


    Languages Italian (mother language) English (Intermediate)

    Programming Matlab, Fortran, IDL

    Software Zemax, Gate(Geant4) Software Office, Gimp, LATEX


    Stangalini, Faccini, Pedichini et al. “Adaptive Optics for High Precision Polarimetry: preliminary tests of DM polarization”, SPIE Proceedings Volume 10703, Adaptive Optics Systems VI, 2018


    I follow space programs development, not only for professional issues, but I think that is the future of human kind. I love thinking about human in space, and future development.

    I’m also a science fiction lover. For all of these reasons I have begun studying Astrophysics.

    I have interests in geopolitics, and often read specialized magazine, and follow some Internet pages. To understand deeply european situation, I have begun to read about economics and its principles.

    Another field of interests for is history of life, and deep time. I read books about this matter, and I follow Internet pages debate this argument.

    I practiced martial art, ninjutsu, kung-fu Sanda and much free practice, to improve my self-awareness, to learn the capability to self-improvement, so needed in life, both professional and private context.
