     Date available:within a month
     KeywordsElectric Propulsion, Analysis, Test, Vacuum, Hall Effect Thruster

    Personal Data

    Date Of Birth: 05 June 1992
    Place Of Birth: Pietrasanta (LU), Italy
    Nationality: Italian
    Both my great passion for scientific topics and new technologies are the main drivers that brought me to got a master graduation in Aerospace Engineer. After my challenging experience abroad at Dresden University (Germany) and more than a year spent working in the Space sector I am now fully aware that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.

    Working Experience
    September 2018 - present, Electric Propulsion Engineer, Aerospazio Tecnologie S.r.l

    The employment consists in a formation as researcher assigned to experimental activity in the plasma propulsion field for space applications. This entails different tasks:

    • Practical management of electric thrusters, their investigation and correct placement inside vacuum facilities;
    • Utilization of vacuum facilities, turbines, cryogenic fluids and thrusters’ propellants;
    • Preparation from scratch of new vacuum chambers;
    • Design and produce suitable plates and structures to recreate well defined thermal and  mechanical conditions;
     • Discuss with customers about the test results by written reports and/or telephone
    • Quality inspection of documents following UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 and UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 norms;
    • Travel abroad to reach the customer when required.

    October 2017, Success in Engineer Qualifying Examination

    September 2014 - May 2017, Master Degree in Space Engineering, University of Pisa (Italy)

    Lectures were proposed in English language and they focused on both physical and applied  sciences. Main topics were related to rocket propulsion, thermal fluid science, plasma propulsion,  spaceflight mechanics and spacecraft structures’ dynamics.
    Master Thesis: Thermo-mechanical Analysis Of Composite Structures In A Sounding Rocket
    Supervisors: Luca d’Agostino, Christian Bach, Jan Sieder
    Description:This thesis was developed at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). Here a theoretical approach has been proposed to estimate thermo-mechanical stresses and strains in  carbon fiber sounding rocket’s skirt and thrust scaffold. Numerical simulations using Ansys PrePost  and eLamX2 have been deeply investigated to obtain reliable results. Eventually a test campaign has been organized for future applications.
    Final Mark: 109/110

    September 2011 - November 2014, Bachelor Degree in Aerospace Engineering, University of Pisa (Italy)

    Lectures introduced students to the main physical, chemical and mathematical sciences.
    A preliminary presentation of aircrafts’ engines and main plants on board was also furnished, with a deep focus on the plane’s aerodynamic aspects.
    Bachelor Thesis: Variable Conductance Heat Pipes (VCHPs) E Closed Loop Pulsating Heat Pipes (CLPHPs)
    Supervisors: Sauro Filippeschi
    Description: This thesis briefly investigates the basic concepts of different types of heat pipes starting from their physical model and their historical development. Eventually a focus on some tests regarding their functionality is proposed.
    Final Mark: 95/110

    Student Activities

    February 2016 - April 2016, Partecipation At "Ariston Thermo Graduates Challenge"
    The challenge consisted in a selection of twenty participants from eight Italian universities to form five different teams that had to work online to plan a strategy to help company in expanding its commerce in the American continent. The final step of this challenge foresaw the presentation of the teams’ strategies in front of the CEO of the Ariston Thermo Group in english language in Milan.

    Student Projects
    September 2015 - June 2016, Low Thrust Hall Effect Thruster Demonstration, Space System Course

    This project aimed to create a satellite mission able to prove a Hall Effect thruster reliability in the space environment. Both the mission mechanics and satellite’s assembly have been developed. Catia, Ansys Workbench, GMAT, STK10 and Matlab have been used in the project.

    September 2015 - August 2016, European Robotic Arm Analysis, Spacecraft Structures and Mechanics Course

    In this project European Robotic Arm (ERA)’s launch configuration was reproduced and simulated considering external loads and vibrations. Catia and Ansys Workbench have been used to recreate 3D models and estimate stresses and strains. ERA’s planetary gear system have been studied and its parts’ level of stress computed. Eventually Arm’s dynamic has been simulated using the Matlab free toolbox rvctools.

    In my life I have always had four big passions: science, politics and travels. The former is the one I am developing the most at the moment reading many books and an italian scientific magazine called QUERY. Another magazine I am subscribed to is Foreign Affair, an international periodical about worldwide events. Although these passions are really important in my life, also travel is really significant to me. Traveling in different countries spread in Europe, but also in India and in the USA, I am able to appreciate different lifestyles and cultures making the life worth to be lived.
