I have obtained (December 2013) my Master in Science Communication at the International School of Advanced Studies, a post-graduate teaching and research institute in Trieste (Italy). Several areas were covered: newspaper, radio, TV and online journalism, institutional and business communication, traditional and multimedia publishing, museology.
Earlier, in 2010, I have obtained my Master of Science degree in Astronomy at the University of Padua (Italy), with a specialization in stellar variability and extrasolar planets. From October 2008 to June 2009 I had the opportunity to write my Master Thesis at the German Aerospace Center in Berlin (Germany).
At the moment, I am working for a company in Berlin and I am writing for the scientific web magazine Rivista Micron. Furthermore, until September 2016 I have worked as communications consultant for the Italian space engineering company Argotec. I have also collaborated as social media manager (above all Twitter) with the Institute for Science and Technology Communication (IWTK).
In addition, in 2013, I had also the great pleasure to do a traineeship at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne (Germany). The main task was the draft of several contents about food and nutrition in space, from the point of view of diet and available foods as well as nutritional requirements and conditions of use. This is one of the main interests of my tutor, the ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti. I am also one of the contributors of her official website Avamposto42.
