**Professional Experiences**

__Since September 2013__
I'm working at INO-CNR at Florence as Researcher. My present
research subject is still the study of dynamic and thermodynamic properties
of classical and quantum many-body systems.

__From December 2011 to August 2013__
I have worked at the ISC-CNR at Florence as Researcher. Studing the dynamic and thermodynamic properties
of classical and quantum many-body systems.

__From
January 2010 to December 2010__
I have worked at the Dept. of Physics of Florence University as
Temporary Researcher and I have studied some dynamic thermodynamic
aspects of *Bose-Hubbard
model and Discrete non-linear Schroedinger equation*.

__From
January 2009 to December 2009__
I have worked at the Dept. of Mathematics and Informatics of Salerno
University as member of the Prof. Fabrizio Illuminati's *Quantum
Theory Group*.

__From
August 2005 to December 2008,__
I have worked at the Dept. of Physics of Florence University, here I
have kept on working on Bose-Einstein condensation, in collaboration
with Prof. R. Livi (of Florence University) and Prof. G.-L. Oppo
(University of Strathclyde, Glasgow UK) that are theoreticians
specialist in Statistical Mechanics, Dynamical Systems and Non-linear
Optics. The union of our expertises allows us to predict an
interesting phenomenon of *self-localization
for Bose-Einstein condensates in dissipative optical lattices*.

__From
December 2000 to July 2005__,
I have worked at the Dept. of Physics of Pisa University. There I
have worked first in close collaboration with the Prof. E. Arimondo's
Bose-Einstein condensation group, and later as part of his group
itself. I greatly appreciated the collaboration with the experimental
group of Prof. Arimondo where my knowledge of theoretical physics has
been exploited. In this experience I have adapted my theoretical
models to schemes closer to the experimental configurations. The
research work done in Pisa on *coherent
transport of Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattice*,
represents an important progress in the application of Bose-Einstein
condensates to quantum computation.

__Before
December 2000__,
I have been to Turin where I have collaborated with Prof. V. Penna at
the Dept. of Physics of the Polytechnic. There I started my studies
on Bose-Einstein condensation and the collaboration with Prof. Penna
has profitably continued up to now. __Before
my post doc in Turin__,
during my PhD, I have worked on a Geometrical and Topological
approach to the study Thermodynamic Phase Transitions, from these
studies, my collaborator Dr. M. Pettini, and me, have derived a
*theorem proving a
necessary topological condition for the occurrence of ﬁrst or
second order phase transitions*.
I have got my graduation degree in Pisa, with a theoretical thesis in
General Relativity, Prof. E. Guadagnini has been thesis supervisor.
In addition to the above mentioned collaborations I have also worked
with Prof. R. Gatto in Geneva and Prof. E. G. D. Cohen (Rockefeller
University, New York).
