Luca Massidda graduates in Mechanical Engineering at Cagliari University in 1997. He works for two year as a mechanical engineer for a private company, designing special valves for refinery plants. Since 1999 he works at CRS4, where he gains experience in mechanical simulation and in scientific programming on parallel machines. He is involved in several projects: the design of fission fragment space propulsion system for the Italian Space Agency, the design of several equipment of the LHC and other experiments for CERN, the simulation of elastic wave propagation in various fields, the design and simulation of a solar power system, among others. In 2008 he works at CERN as a scientific associate developing simulation software for beam dump studies. He is now working again at CRS4 in fluid dynamics, turbulent combustion and mechanical simulation and he is group leader of the Smart Energy Systems team.
