Laura Pernigoni, a PhD student in Aerospace Engineering at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano, has been awarded one of the Amelia Earhart 2021 scholarships.

The scholarship was established in 1938 in honour of the famous female pilot Amelia Earhart, and it is granted by Zonta International to support PhD research by women in Space Science and Aerospace Engineering.

It will further support Pernigoni’s research work, that focuses on self-repairing materials applied to inflatable and deployable space structures.
