Andrea completed his Bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Padova (Italy). He then moved to London where he obtained an MSc in Aerospace Engineering and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Kingston University of London. Andrea's PhD research relates to numerical modelling of three-dimensional swept- and crossing-shock-wave/turbulent boundary-layer interactions. His original contribution to knowledge focuses primarily on investigating numerically pressure, temperatures, heat transfer and flow topologies in supersonic and hypersonic engines / aerodynamic surfaces. Whilst doing his PhD, Andrea worked as a graduate teaching assistant and hourly paid lecturer in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) at Kingston University of London.
Andrea joined a large London-based firm of patent and trade mark attorneys in 2015 as a Trainee Patent Attorney in the Engineering, Physics and Mechanical devices patent department. His main clients operate in industry sectors such as oil & gas exploration and extraction, drilling systems and tools, thermal insulation systems, and automotive, and aerospace. During his training, Andrea has obtained a postgraduate certificate in Intellectual Property Law at Queen Mary University of London.
Andrea joined Sanderson & Co. in July 2017 where is currently studying to become a Chartered Patent Attorney and an European Patent Attorney.
Andrea enjoys playing guitar, cooking, trekking, and spending time with his young family.
