How LinkedIn has helped you in your careers or businesses:

Maintain high level of connectivity and quality within the space community.
Synergy between university research and industrial application.
Promote my work as a PhD researcher before, and now as space engineer.
Provide an easier insight to complex topics to a non-space audience.

Tips on how to Thrive on LinkedIn:

I do not have a specific cadence but I tend to leave less than 2 months between posts. I usually post as soon as I achieve a relevant milestone at work (company updates) or in my personal life, or when I participate in a space conference or event. I focus on the importance of networking with the community, and I usually explain why the topic I am focusing on is relevant to the community.


What I use Linkedin for:

Follow daily news from the space industry, NGOs and activities from my connections.
Share my achievements as space engineer and within my projects. I am trying to be an inspiration, especially for women being at an early stage in their engineering careers.

Number of Followers:





Who am I:

I am an enthusiast aerospace engineer accepting all incoming challanges, no matter how difficult or impossible they are.

What I do:

I work as system engineer and project manager in a NewSpace German startup, but also support reasearch groups within NGOs for engineering topics.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

In my posts I do not tend to focalize on my achievements only, but I stress the importance of cooperations and teamwork when reaching those achievements. Also, I tend to bring light on connections or topics that are not well known to the community, especially the non-space one.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I find the following women extremely insipirng to me: Rania Toukebri, and Alexandra Sokolowski. They show the strenght of women in an environment that sometimes it is not easy to cope with. Among the men, I had the pleasure to work with Antonio Stark before, and I admire his passion in his posts.

❝This is by far my favourite post. It was the first time that it was not related to pure engineering stuff, and doing this activity described in the post really pushed me out of my confort zone. Something that I really want to tell the network about.❞

❝It is a repost indeed, but I loved to stress the fact that even by following a hard path like a PhD, there is always a time when you’ll realize that whatever happend before is actually valuable. I am for sure not the only one who did a PhD and felt depressed or inadequate in some moments. I hope to have given some insight on how easily we could feel this, but also how well you will feel afterwards knowing that you managed to get through it!❞
