About Me: 

More than 6 years of experience in research area basically spent in the biomedical and robotics field. I am experienced in leading design works in the development of new mechatronics prototypes, in design and implementation of new solutions, with focus in the robotic and biomedical research fields. I am used to face my job following innovative design processes, hands-on attitude, respecting time and budget constraints, and with special attention to details. I have successfully combined my studies with work and other commitments showing myself to be self-motivated, organised and capable of working under pressure. I have a clear, logical mind with a practical approach to problem solving, to set priorities and a drive to see things through to completion. I enjoy working on my own initiative or in a team. Ph.D. in Microsystems Engineering from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Master's Degree, Automotive Engineer, at University of Pisa, with the thesis: Design and Build of a Formula SAE Vehicle's frame; Advisor: Prof. Ing. E. Vitale, Ing. F.Frendo, Ing. G. Melani. 2008. Bechelor's Degree, Mechanical Engineer at University of Pisa with the thesis: Influence of misalignment on transmission of spur gears; Advisors: Prof. Ing. M. Beghini, Ing. C. Santus. 2005.
