Social skills and competences

 

-Team work:

 

I have experienced the team work during my stay in US within the so-called “skin friction team”. In particular, I had weekly meetings with my US advisor (Research Project Coordinator), the VT researchers and the NanoSonic Inc. skilled staff to check the status quo of the research project, its advancements and fix the planning for the next week.

 

I belonged to a 72 elements orchestra as violinist for 3 years.

 

-Intercultural skills:

 

I am experienced at working in a European dimension such as being promoter and organizer for seminars about Italian culture (music and art) during my stay in Dublin (UCD-University College of Dublin) in 2000.

 

I travelled a lot across the Europe (England, Denmark, Holland, France, Ireland, Malta and Czech Republic) for language training courses and cultural exchanges.

I visited the Paris Air show (2007 and 2009)  and the Farnborough International air show, in order to keep me informed about the status quo of the aerospace field and keep in touch with some companies such as Boeing, Rockwell Space, P&W, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.

 

 

 

Organisational skills and competences

-I organised together with the rest of the skin friction team the meeting for the PHASE II of the STTR Project, in order to get funds from the AFOSR/NASA scientific coordinator Dr. John D. Schmisseur (Ph.D., Purdue University, Air Force Office of Scientific Research- AFOSR) . In particular, I held a presentation about my research in front of the scientific committee.

 

 

Technical skills and competences

-Good knowledge in using software ANSYS (CFX, FLUENT, Thermal Transient) for thermal and conjugate analysis. Skilled in making presentations with Power Point.

 

 

 

Computer skills and competences

-Competent with Microsoft Office, FORTRAN 90/95, MATLAB,SIMULINK,FLUENT

 

-Skilled with ANSYS 12-12.1 (CFX, Thermal…)
