I improved my knowledge and experience in flight mechanics and attitude control with my 18 months thesis work, in partnership with Italian Aerospace Research Center (CIRA and Polytechnic of Milan.

My thesis covered a wide range of topics, i.e.:

- nonlinear system control, mainly concerning the dynamics inversion method applied to non-linear models;

- aerodynamic and aircraft design, mainly concerning the trim, manoeuvrability and stability analysis for various flight configurations;

- atmospheric and extra-atmospheric flight and its attitude control, discerning between stability and instability flight conditions;

- suborbital flight trajectory design in order to maximize the heat flux;

- parabolic trajectory design in order to experiment microgravity aboard;

- robust model study and design via mu-analysis;

I graduated in 2005 in Aerospace Engineering at Polytechnic of Milan with final mark of 85/100.

My 18 months thesis work, in partnership with the Italian Aerospace Research Center (CIRA), dealt with the development of a flight simulator of a space shuttle involved in a suborbital re-entry trajectory, as foreseen in the USV (Unmanned Space Vehicle) program. My supervisor was Prof.s Ercoli Amalia FINZI and I was also supported by my supervisor’s assistant, Eng. Francesco CURRERI (project engineer in USV program). My academic career covered the following research fields of industrial interest:

- structural with Science of Constructions, Aeronautics Constructions I and II, Structure and Aerospace Materials I;

- control theory with Automatic and Aerospace Servo-systems;
