About Me

I am interested in Cosmology since there are many many open questions which people are trying to understand and interpret. We are now in the era of precision cosmology so it's going to be very exciting. My area of research is mostly based on the study of the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB).

I am a PostDoc at UC Berkeley and at the Center for Computational Cosmology, (led by Julian Borrill). I am actively involved in several CMB experiments to date: Simons Observatory, Bicep/ Keck, CMB-S4 and LiteBIRD and I am involved in Galactic and Extra-galactic science, Systematics and Foreground Cleaning analysis for these experiments. I am currently working on systematics assessments for Litebird and SO due to gain drifts and beam systematics on one hand. On the other hand, I am interested in improving the foreground modelling by identifying area of homogeneity in the spectral quantities we use to parameterize the Foreoground emission.

I graduated in Astrophysics at the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste (Italy) on October, 2017 and I worked on data analysis for Cosmic Microwave Background ground based experiments under the supervision of prof. Carlo Baccigalupi and Dr. Giulio Fabbian since October 2013 (when my PhD started)..

On December, 2016 I got a Master in High Performance Computing (MHPC) meant to improve the young scientists capability in writing massively parallel codes, installing and handling any scientific library, object oriented programming, finite element methods, iterative methods, large-data manipulation, parallel linear algebra and advanced numerical analysis.
