M. (Matteo) Majer MSc
Matteo obtained his Bachelor's degree in 2016 from Politecnico di Milano, in Italy. As an undergraduate, he matured a strong interest for fluid dynamics and thermodynamics which culminated in the successful completion of a Master's of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, with a specialization in Propulsion Systems.
Across the period going from late 2017 to mid 2018 he works at Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, in Belgium, as a student researcher. The internship was completed with a Master's thesis work on novel design guidelines for tip clearance loss reduction in modern unshrouded high pressure turbine blades for aircraft engines turbomachinery.
As a young graduate, his extreme curiosity brings him to the automotive industry; he takes up the role of Mechanical Development Engineer at TREMEC, where he obtains experience on the product development cycle by working in close contact with automotive OEMs.
As of September 2020, he is appointed the role of PhD candidate researcher from Prof. Colonna. The position is received by Matteo as a very important step towards his ambition of taking part into outstanding actions for creating a more sustainable future of humanity. His research is focused on studying novel guidelines for the design of unconventional turbomachinery for cogeneration through Organic Rankine Cycle Power Systems.
In his private life, Matteo is a sports and outdoors enthusiast; from surfing to snowboarding, all the way to swimming and bouldering, he loves leading a healthy lifestyle. When travelling, he usually tries to keep connected with nature through hiking and backpacking. He mostly enjoys the peaceful wilderness of extreme habitats, often in conjunction with a reading that he always brings along in his trips.
He considers his connection with the elements to be the force that drives his private and professional life choices, and motivates him to always take an extra step for environment and those less fortunate.
