Roberta Masci

Roberta Masci is a Ph.D student at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. She started the Doctoral Program in “Energy and Environment” in November 2016, funded by GA Energy S.p.a., where she is employed as project engineer and scientific collaborator for R&D activities in the energy sector. Her research mainly focuses on thermodynamic and thermoeconomic analysis of advanced energy conversion systems. In particular, her current research activity deals with Thermal Energy Storage (TES), High-temperature heat pumps, Concentrated solar power systems, Sabatier methanation power plant for CO2 capture, and Turbomachinery (gas turbine blade cooling). As teaching support activity, she supervises several student projects and master theses on topics related to her research. In January 2016, Roberta Masci took a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. She attended the “Energy Course” for her Masters, thus specializing in the energy conversion field. Her final thesis was on “Air-cooled gas turbine cycles: simulation of the effects of blade cooling on gas turbine performance”, which was the result of a collaboration with GE-Alstom Power (Baden, Switzerland). She attended two ECOS international conferences on Efficiency, Cost, Optimization, Simulation and environmental impact of energy systems in July 2015 (Pau, France), as an undergraduate student, and in June 2016 (Portoroz, Slovenia), as a graduate student, where she was also appointed as co-chairman.
