    SKILLS

    Language Skills:
    Italian (mother tongue), English (fluent), Spanish (fluent), German (fair)

    Interpersonal Skills:
    I am a naturally open-minded, outgoing, and sociable person. I actively pursue opportunities to work in inter‑cultural environments, which I find both challenging and enriching.  My exposure to both European and Asian cultures sharpened my ability to listen, identify miscommunications, and defuse conflicts within my team, channeling its energy towards a common goal.  I promote a culture of integrity, transparency, and collaboration by practicing leadership by example.  I empower my team members to thrive by providing constructive feedback, guidance, and training .

    Organizational Skills:
    I am a methodical, clear-thinking manager, endowed with formal studies in business administration and entrepreneurship.  At Avanti, where I successfully set up the Flight Dynamics operations, I gained experience at developing in-house a brand new technological function. I designed Avanti FD concept of operations, and supported the procurement of the necessary hardware and software.  I drafted Avanti FD procedures, built up a team from scratch, and provided the relevant training.  I continuously pursue process improvements by following an Agile approach, and actively manage operational and financial risks. Thanks to my effort, Avanti has now flawlessly operated its satellite fleet for more than a year, and is preparing its expansion.

    Technical Skills:
    Throughout my career in the space sector, I worked both on feasibility studies for Earth Observation missions (Earth Explorers, Sentinels), and on routine operations for flying satellites. These two complementary working experiences helped me achieve a deep understanding of the Product Life-Cycle Management of a space mission.  My role at ESA sharpened my ability to solve problems and articulated my capacity to deliver optimum results under extreme constraints of time.  I am endowed with sharp analytical skills, natural attention to details, and a capacity to efficiently design complex technical systems (from software architecture to concept of operations).

    Computer Skills:
    * Operating Systems: Windows; LINUX; SUN/Solaris; iOS; Android
    * Authoring: MS Office; Open Office, Adobe Acrobat; LaTeX; GNUPLOT; Frame Maker
