Biography

Currently, I am doing my PhD at Polytechnic University of Turin and at the company IMST under the GENIUS program of Marie Curie doctoral network. The objective of the research is to design glide-symmetric radiating meta-surfaces for car radar antenna front-end operating at W and G frequency bands.

I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Electrical Engineering after studying at Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During my academic career, I specialized in signal processing & transmission, analog/digital electronics and programming. I acquired the advanced physics of electromagnetism and antenna theory. I also mastered microwave engineering and programming in Matlab, Python, C, VHDL. I learned the fundamentals of CST/Ansys softwares, vector network analysers, spectrum analysers, oscilloscopes and many other electronic instruments. These allow me to design complex integrated circuit systems and antennas, test their performances and optimize them. Furthermore, I obtained deeper knowledge in digital communication networks, especially in wireless networks and IoT.

In terms of my soft skills I am a very autonomous person with good communication skills and team spirit. As I am a trilingual person who has French and English terminologies in electronics, it's easy for me to adapt to multicultural environments. My autonomy comes from my personal projects in electronics that I have been doing since I was 12 years old. They allowed me to practice working methodically and develop my analytical intelligence and problem solving skills overtime.
