Mechanical Design Engineer and Professor
He received his Master of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2009 at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, where he developed his MD thesis about structural damages of helicopter gearboxes (AgustaWestland). He graduated Ph.D. (European Label, with merit) at the same University with a thesis entitled “Efficiency of gear transmissions and CFD analysis of load independent power losses”.
In 2012 he had a research fellowship at the FZG Dept. of the TU Munich and in 2013 a Post. Doc. position at the mechanical department of Politecnico di Milano (ENI). His research fields include the development of CFD tools for the prediction of power losses, thermal regimes and efficiency of gearboxes and FEM modeling. To date, he is working as senior mechanical design engineer at Bonfiglioli Mechatronic Research in Rovereto and as contract professor at the Science and Technology Dept. of the Free university of Bolzano.
