I’m a young engineer, basically a science enthusiast who love what he’s doing: study, travel, research…which is nice.
I grew up in a small town in Italy, in the north-eastern region of the country, not far from Venice but far enough to be closer to the Alps than to the sea. In my town we are just some thousands people, living on the feet of some beautiful hills where vineyards are cultivated since 1500.
My father taught me that in life is fundamental to be ready to face this ever-changing world, it’s its nature to evolve and we need to adapt; in the meanwhile my mother’s love for teaching induced my enthusiasm for learning.
Thanks to my parents’ vision I’ve been two weeks in England when I was just 13-years-old, and I’ve also been six months in New Zealand as an exchange student in 2009; Which has been one of the best experiences in my life. I was hosted by a beautiful kiwi couple, Mark and Yvonne, who sheared all their love with me and Luca, a German guy who was there for the same reason of mine.
I studied in the Whangaparaoa College as any other New Zealand student and i took classes of both English and Maori language. My thirst of new experiences took me in Nepal in 2013, where I spent 2 weeks trekking around the Annapurna. With the same spirit I went in the eastern Kashmir last summer, hiking the high valleys between Pakistan, India and Tibet.
As a student I studied in the Liceo Scientifico Tecnologico, where I took STEM courses like math, chemistry, physics, computer programming, biology, astronomy, design; but I didn’t leave out classical subject like philosophy, which I studied for three years.
I just earned my Master’s degree in Materials Engineering for Biomedical Technologies at the University of Trento, where I also had my bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering back in October 2013.
Last year, 2015, I’ve been in Japan, working at Tohoku University as research student. There I had the chance to start and develop a research project, looking for a new material for biomedical technologies. In a 6 months period I developed a novel metal quasi-alloy, its properties are promising for the application as implanted device and I’m about to submit an article for publication, too.
On the 18th of December (2015) I earned the Master’s Degree in Materials Engineering obtaining the maximum grade with honors, presenting my work at Tohoku University as master’s thesis.
Right after the graduation I was selected for a Graduate Trainee program called ABSNext, of the Danieli’s steelmaking section. During this 1-year-long program I went through several department in the plant, so to have an overview of the whole production process. In particular I’ve been in the Meltshop, Domestic Logistic, Expedition and Purchasing Departments.
Recently, on the second week of November, I changed job moving from ABS to Lima Corporate. Even if I did not finished my program in ABS I decided to move to Lima Corporate because it is active in the biomedical devices filed, which is aligned with my personal interests. Here I am in the R&D department, part of the “Pro Made” team which designs custom orthopedic implants (built by means of Electron Beam Melting). In this process the designer works in cooperation with the surgeon in order to define the requirements and design both the implant and the surgical procedure.
