I joined FiatAvio in 2002 (AVIO from 2003), worldwide leader in the aerospace industry, as Project Engineer in the Space Propulsion Design Unit, where I mainly worked on Ariane 5 and Vega solid rocket motors performances.
In 2005, I joined D’Appolonia (Rina Consulting from 2016), an engineering consultancy company, as Project Manager, and worked in Aerospace&Defence industrial projects.
In particular, I was deeply involved in the European Space Agency Technology Transfer Programme, as technology broker.
I have been working, since 2005, in the coordination and management of research projects funded within the European Framework Programmes and also had the opportunity of evaluating H2020 proposals for REA (Research Executive Agency).
I have recently joined ASI in the Innovation & Technology Transfer Unit.
