I love working in international environments where I can give my best due to the flow of diverse point of view and being stimulated by many enriching inputs.
In my 10+ years of experience I worked in different area of application in the naval, aviation, and aerospace industry gaining both management and technical competences.
In the last 4+ years I have been working within the framework of the Galileo GNSS programme, at the beginning in the Security team and currently as a RAMS Safety of Life engineer.
Previously, I was Project Engineer at IDS having the responsibility both for the technical and management aspects of several Radar Cross Section (RCS) design regarding naval and avionic platform. I’ve been also involved in EMC design, and measurement campaigns aimed at verifying the requirements and at confirming the simulation results. Last but not least, I’ve been also working for the product assurance department in the frame of radar and unmanned dependability and safety requirements verification.
I am dedicated professional with an aptitude for innovation, creative problem-solving, and analytical thinking.
