Work Experience
  • CSEM S.A.
    MAR 2015 - AUG 2015
    Master Thesis Project

    Study and optimization of arrays of cross-talking resonant waveguide-gratings that can be used as optical filters and optical elements for optical security. The project has required a mix of fabrication, characterization and engineering development, in parallel with analytical and numerical solving. The structures have been tested and characterized using standard and to-be-developed custom tools. Various numerical simulations tools (FDTD, ray tracing, SIE, RCWA) have been evaluated and used in combination to theoretical analytical solutions.

  • CSEM S.A.
    JUN 2014 - AUG 2014
    Assistant Engineer

    Integration of Near Field Optical simulations of micro and nano-structures in a Matlab Platform, in order to increase the accuracy of simulations of grating structures, based on RCWA (Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis) method and the avaluation of the local absorption.

Education
  • Micro and Nano Technologies for ICTs
    SEP 2013 - PRESENT
    Master's Degree - Engineer Diploma

    After this international Master course I am able to design, develop and use micro/nanodevices and related technologies and I am an engineer of innovation: I can manage and design highly scientific and innovative products and processes in all areas of industrial and applied research based on micro/nanotechnologies. Along with providing a solid grounding in the most advanced aspects of electronic engineering, this degree programme has given to me a coherent set of specific skills in material physics aimed at optimising the materials and processes used to design all types of micro/nanodevices.

    • The first semester takes place at PoliTo (Politecnico di Torino - Italy), and is devoted to in-depth examination of the physics of solid-state and nanomaterials and techniques for processing and characterising nanomaterials.
    • The second semester is held at INPG (Institut national polytechnique de Grenoble - France) and is dedicated to nanostructures, nano-electronics and electronic microsystems.
    • The third semester takes place at EPFL (Ecole polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne - Switzerland) and concentrates on analog microcircuits and micro/nanosystems.
  • Physical Engineering
    SEP 2010 - SEP 2013
    Bachelor's Degree

    After this Bachelor course I am able to efficiently deal with the most advanced issues of pure and applied physics (e.g., quantum physics, optics and photonics, solid-state physics, nuclear physics, physics and technology of nanostructures, physics of complex systems). I have the competences to take actively part in the development of new technological products characterized by a reduced time lag between scientific discovery and ensuing application, as well as by an ever increasing level of innovation.

    • Solid scientific skills, including scientific foundations and the methodological and operational aspects of mathematics and basic sciences (physics and chemistry) as applied to engineering.
    • Basic engineering skills, with reference to contents typical of information engineering (electro-technical, electronic, electromagnetic fields and measures).
    • Specific expertise in the advanced and applied physics of physics engineering, regarding quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, the physics of complex systems, solid state physics, nuclear physics, and their applications to innovative materials. The relative courses are mainly in the third year to make full use of the contents and the methodological and operational tools provided by instruction in basic science and basic engineering.
