Professional

Ilaria is a Fellow of the Aerospace Medical Association, President of the Aerospace Human Factors Association and a Member-at-Large of the Aerospace Medical Council. She is also Co-Leader of the Space Exploration Group of the Space Generation Advisory Council and an invited member of The Mars Society Steering Committee. In the end, she is a Mentor and Role Model of the Space4Women network of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.


Her work experiences are in biomedical engineering, neural engineering, human factors, mission design, analogue missions, space medicine, leadership, coaching and management, business development. A few awards include the ESA scholarship 2018 by the International Space University, the Anita Mantri Scholarship 2018 by the Aerospace Medical Association and two Emerging Space Leaders Scholarships (2016 and 2017) by The Mars Society.


On the journey to Mars, we will find out what Humanity is really about.
