As a young Engineer and PhD involved in numerous R&D projects, run in laboratories in Italy and abroad, I have found working with different people and teams particularly enjoyable. Through this, I have learned to be a strong and proactive team player.
I am fortunate enough to have gone through an excellent education system, and to have had the opportunity to work in different fields ranging from Civil Engineering to structure dynamics, from experimental Aerodynamics to theoretical Fluid Mechanics.
