Research interests

Autonomous space systems
Spacecraft formation flight


I have seen the PhD program as the most stimulating, dynamic, and ambitious choice for my future. My primary interest is about autonomous space system for space exploration. During these years, I had the chance to work with different companies, univerisity labs, and researchers in the field (ESA,JAXA,...). The opportunity to be hosted as visiting PhD student in the US and in Japan to learn from the research activities and from the experiences of many people has been really valuable for me. Working in different countries, with people with a different academic, working and personal background, shaped my work attitude and inner strength. I will put all my efforts in getting as much knowledge as i can from this path, in order to continue my contribution in this sector also after my PhD studies.
