Dr Antonella Ingenito is the coordinator and PI of the FARI and “Grandi Ricerche” proposal funded by the Univerity of Rome La Sapienza and THESEUS funded by AVIO S.p.a. She worked as first researcher at two EU combustion and propulsion projects, LAPCAT (AST4-CT-2005-012282) (on supersonic combustion) and LAPCAT II (ACP7-GA-2008-211485) (on supersonic combustion and vehicle sizing). She has also participated in two Italian Ministry of Research-funded projects (from 2007 to 2009) dealing with micro-propulsion and supersonic combustion modelling and LES. Since 2007 she teaches at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, and she is a scientific advisor of Bachelor and Master Degree Theses.
