My background is in Physics and Astrophysics.
I started my scientific education at the University of Milano-Bicocca, in Italy, where I got both my bachelor degree in Physics (2013) and my master degree in Astrophysics and Space Physics (2015) under the supervision of Prof Massimo Dotti and Dr Alessia Gualandris.
In October 2015 I started my PhD (project: Dynamics of Single and Binary Black Holes in Galactic Nuclei) at the INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova under the supervision of Prof Michela Mapelli, working on the dynamics of stars in galactic nuclei within the ForDyS group. During both my master and PhD, I spent a total of 16 months at the University of Surrey (UK), where I worked with Dr Alessia Gualandris, investigating the dynamics of supermassive black hole binaries.
Since the end of 2018, I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute for Computational Science of the University of Zurich, and I am working in the group of Prof Lucio Mayer on the evolution of supermassive binaries and extreme mass ratio inspirals for the LISA mission.
