Filippo Cichocki obtained his master degree in "space engineering" at the university of Rome "Sapienza" in 2009. His master thesis consisted in the experimental evaluation of the RF discharge in a DS4G (Dual Stage 4-grids) ion thruster. Between July 2009 and Sep 2013 he worked at Deimos-Space as a junior project engineer where he contributed to several european space industry projects (Exomars, RAAS, MARCOPOLO-R, NEOSHIELD etc...). In Oct 2013, he finally enrolled for a PhD in "plasma physics and nuclear fusion" at the university of Madrid "Carlos III" where he is currently employed. The Phd thesis will focus on the far field expansion of a plasma beam in space.
