Collection description

The Ph.D. work has been focused on the development of a dust sensor for Martian atmosphere. The Optical Particle Counter "MicroMED" will be part of the upcoming ExoMars 2022 mission and aims at the first ever direct measurement at the surface of airborne Martian dust. Such measurements will determine size distribution and concentration of dust suspended in Martian atmosphere, providing a significant contribution to the understanding of Martian climate. One of the main focuses of my Ph.D. work has been the fluid dynamic design of the instrument. After the completion of the Flight Model design, I contributed to the integration, qualification and testing of the instrument. MicroMED has then been adapted to Earth atmosphere for testing in terrestrial deserts, and as an aerosol sampler in the framework of the battle against the spread of the SARS CoV-2 pandemic, the latter resulting in a patented invention. For both instruments, I have developed the fluid dynamic design and contributed to the other phases of the development.
