I am Facundo Cosimo, a Mechanical Engineer graduated from the National University of Rosario located in Argentina. For the last 5 years, I have been working in different companies as a Design Engineer and a Project Engineer. I started to work in these companies while I was still a student, something that allowed me to complement the formal education imparted at the University with highly valuable experience.
During my time spent in industry I was faced with complex problems that many times required me to rely not only on classical engineering tools but also in modern approaches, such as those found in CAE and CAD software packages. In addition, I consider myself passionate about programming. In this context, I find the THREAD project as the perfect opportunity to boost my skills both as a Mechanical Engineer and as a programmer.
I would say that the key assets that I have to offer are my experience in dealing with complex mechanical problems and my wide knowledge in software development. Both abilities prove to be essential to successfully deal with the simulation of multi-filament cables through the proposal of novel techniques as required by my THREAD’s research topic. I am also highly motivated by the multidisciplinary nature of the THREAD project, an aspect that I consider essential to deliver innovative and creative ideas. I truly believe that I am being faced with an invaluable opportunity to continue learning while actively contributing to groundbreaking developments.
