About me

Born in Italy, in the Venice area, I studied Aerospace Engineering at the University of Padova.

I started working as a Manufacturing Engineer in the aerospace business for Avio Aero, a GE Aviation Company, in the Turin area, where I had the opportunity to manage the product industrialization of mechanical components for leading American and Canadian aeroengine manufacturers.

Then I moved to Germany to work for Rolls-Royce Deutschland near Berlin and then  for Aerospace Transmission Technologies, a Joint Venture of Rolls-Royce and Liebherr Aerospace based in the Lake Constance region.

In Germany I had the opportunity to support the Capability Acquisition team to develop methods of production and assembly of critical transmission modules, including managing the implementation of a new assembly facility. Here, I also had the opportunity to expand my knowledge and areas of expertise by scouting suppliers and attending worldwide fairs and by collaborating with Research Centers in the UK.

At the moment I am based in Spain. My goal is to help organizations to develop an innovation culture and to improve their processes.
