I am a passionate scientist with aptitudes for leadership and management. My vision of research is a business oriented one that aims at providing tangible solutions for a sustainable future.
I currently help UK and European companies to conceive new business areas and technologies that will be able to tackle the market needs in the short-term future based on the innovation paths outlined by nowadays research perspectives. In these activities, I work in teams composed of industrial specialists, other technical consultants and managers of several divisions such as R&D, product, and business development.
Moreover, in my hands-on research duties, I lead a small team of engineers and technicians and I assist the Director of Research Centre in the management of UK and EU projects.
Research team leader and project manager for the development of energy conversion systems for industrial heat recovery in UK and EU funded projects.
