“Everyone’s true vocation is only one, that of knowing oneself.
One can end up a poet or a madman, a prophet or a delinquent… in the end it is indifferent.
The problem is to realise one’s own destiny, not just any destiny, and to live it to the full within oneself.”

MY EXPERTISE TO SUPPORT YOU
My coaching approach is embedded into the R&D environment and tailor-made for academia:
I have specific insights and deep understanding of R&D processes, scientific frameworks and related issues.
1. I have in-depth scientific and academic experience
I have a long R&D international experience and deep knowledge of the academic environment: 6 years PhD and researcher at CHOSE lab (Rome), Dyepower Consortium (Rome) and Aalto University (Helsinki), 7 years researcher, team leader (10+ team member) and project leader (budget 3+ M€) at Fraunhofer ISE (Freiburg). I have authored and co-authored peer-reviewed scientific publications on international journals (h-index 18+). I have filed three patents. I have been an invited speaker at various international conferences.
2. My personal experience
I have worked for 15 years in academia and R&D at various levels.
I have personally experienced:
- the frustrations and successes of research,
- the importance of open communication,
- the need to have a well-defined research plan,
- not having a clear vision for my career,
- managing many projects at the same time,
- not being able to dedicate time to what is important to me.
3. I use experiential learning and training
As an accredited Coach, Team Coach and Systemic Experiential Trainer, I offer you coaching for your personal and professional growth through creative activities, gamification and deep experiences. You enjoy and immerse yourself in it. The used learning cycle promotes your personal development in a permanent way.
