ROTOR-DYNAMICS
Refined one-dimensional models can be a valuable alternative to three-dimensional models in the analysis of rotating blades, discs and shafts
BIOMECHANICS
Refined computational models, based on CUF, have been used in the solution of classical bio-mechanical problems
DISSEMINATION
Our work can be found in hundreds of scientific papers and in many books
BEST THEORY DIAGRAMS
The BTD is a tool to edit an arbitrarily given theory to get a lower number of terms for a given error or to increase the accuracy while keeping the computational costs constant.

After earning the academic degree in aerospace engineering in 2005 at the Politecnico di Torino, from August 2005 to February 2006, I had a traineeship about "spacecraft design loads cycles and sine vibration test (with special emphasis to sine test notching)" at the European Space Agency/ESTEC, Structures and Thermal Division. 

In 2006 I covered an ESA NPI (Networking/Partnering Initiative) position. In the framework of the NPI activity, in 2010, I received an Italo-French PhD in aerospace engineering (Politecnico di Torino) and in mechanics (Université Paris Ouest - Nanterre La Défense), topic: "Modeling and validation of multilayered structures for spacecraft, including multifield interactions". 

Until May 2011 I worked as research assistant at the Department of Aeronautics and Space Engineering of Politecnico di Torino, main tasks: implementation of the FEM multifield academic code MUL2 (www.mul2.com); advanced modeling of smart structures; implementation of failure criteria for multilayered composite structures.

Since 2011 I work in Thales Alenia Space (TAS) with the following main topics: structure dynamics; Spacecraft/Launcher Coupled Load Analysis; sine test-predictions; mechanical test campaign conduction; thermal pointing analysis; thermal cycling testing. In TAS I’ve been involved in the following spacecraft programs: ATHENA FIDUS; KAZSAT; SENTINEL 1; SICRAL 2 (working languages: English and French).
