Professional work experience

Process Engineer (June 2011 onwards) Eli Lilly and Company, Italy Pharmaceutical industry Process engineer focuses on the design, operation, control, and optimization of chemical, physical, and biological processes through the aid of systematic computer-based methods. Process Engineer (July 2010 June 2011) Lucchini Spa, Italy Steel industry I was the responsible for managing all aspects of engineering and industrialization associated with the production process (area of responsibility continuous casting). I managed and coordinated interdisciplinary teams of design and product development and defines the objectives, constraints and the characteristics of manufacturability and industrialization of products under development. Main work: 1. Optimization of the production cycle of special steel 2. New cooling system design for high carbon steel

Mechanical Engineer Designer internship (January 2010 July 2010) EsaStudio, Italy Mechanical design office Evaluation the feasibility of a vertical water turbine able to generate about 1 kW of power. The device has been designed to be used in stream and rivers, and our analysis verified the possibility of its use in the Tuscany region and surrounding areas. The novelty of the device is given by the introduction of a mechanism which automatically changes the blades orientation to reduce friction losses. Mechanical Engineer Designer (November 2006 March 2007) Dep. of Mechanical Engineering, Nuclear and Production Engineering University of Pisa Design of an experimental fretting test machine on pipes for oil drilling
