At High school my education was focused mostly in mechanical topics related to the marine sector since I lived in Sardinia, I acheived the A-level - Mechanic of ship’s engine. At Cagliari University my bachelor’s degree thesis was based on Hydrogen technologies of fuel cells and my master’s degree focused on the optimization of last generation coal technologies (USC power plants).
I decided to join the iT-CDT group in Sheffield to develop and increase my knowledge in Tribology and materials, since my ambition for the future is to work in the Oil&Gas and Power industry. I think a good engineer should not have one area of expertise, but should be able to make decisions and evaluate any engineering situation. Since Tribology refers to all about friction, wear and lubrication, any engineering field especially mechanical, chemistry and bioengineering is involved in it. I am sure the iT-CDT will be a great and important transition between my university experience and my career.
