Early Stage Researcher at Luleå University of Technology (Luleå, Sweden) and Professional Engineer (Italian License, 2013), I love to read, write, code and solve problems. I also love to teach and help others learn and succeed.
I hold a M.Sc. in Space Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (110/110, 2013); a M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University (4/4, 2012); a B.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering (110/110, 2010). I gained experience in Research and Development working at Drexel University, IMDEA Materials Institute and ETH Zürich.
I am currently pursuing a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in co-mentorship between Université de Lorraine (France) and Luleå tekniska universitet (Sweden).
