Short Bio

Hello,

I am currently an assistant professor at the LIGO Lab of MIT

Previously, I was an undergraduate student at the University of Bologna, in Italy, where I also took my master degree.

I thus moved to the Pierre et Marie Curie University, Paris (France) for my PhD.

I was a postdoc for two years at the Nikhef of Amsterdam.

I started my appointment at the MIT in the Fall of 2012, where I have been a postdoctoral associate till Aug. 2015, and a research scientist till December 2016.

My main work interests lie in gravitational waves data analysis topics with the LIGO- Virgo collaboration.

In the Publications section of this site you can find links to the papers I have published recently.

They cover several topics related with gravitational waves data analysis, such as parameter estimation -- including black holes' masses and spins; tests of General Relativity; sky localization of gravitational wave sources; measurability of the equation of state of neutron stars; as well as the effect of instrumental calibration errors on data analysis.

In the Group members section you can find information about the members of my group at MIT.
