My formation and attitudes are mainly oriented to the study of simple and complex physical/mathematical problems related to the mechanical behaviour of structures and materials. The theoretical knowledge is coupled with numerical skills and the use of main commercial codes for finite element simulations and other numerical methods. I earned my Master Degree in Mechanical Engineering with highest grade in October 2015 at the Politecnico di Torino. Thesis Project was developed in collaboration with the Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Arts et Metiers in Bordeaux (FR). Aim of this work was to develop a new very general design procedure for Variable Angle Tow Composites (curvilinear fibres composite) based on a B-spline distribution of the orientation angle. Effectiveness of these structures over straight and classical curved fibre composite has been demonstrated using a Genetic Optimization Algorithm coupled with Finite Element Analysis. In the summer of 2013 I have attended a course in Project and People Management in collaboration with COMAU Spa in Detroit (US); during this period different managers of COMAU have introduced participants to the world of management and to the company mechanisms. In January of 2013 I earned my Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering with the highest grade at the University of Federico II in Naples (IT). Thesis project was focused on developing an innovative production method for Aluminium Foam Sandwich based on Friction Stir Welding. Currently I am a PhD student at Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Arts et Metiers under the H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie European Training Network project FULLCOMP. My research activity consists in determinate macroscopic and microscopic behaviours of dry textile structures under static and dynamic loads adopting a multiscale approach based on a discrete element method.
