About me

I am an Associate Professor in Experimental Astroparticle Physics and a Rosalind Franklin Fellow at the Kapteyn Astronomical Institute of the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands. I was born and raised in Rome, where I did my undergraduate and graduate studies at the University "La Sapienza". After I defended my PhD thesis on neutrino astronomy, in 2010, I started a scientific and geographic long trip around the world, working in Marseille, Geneva, Annecy, São Paulo and finally I arrived in Groningen in 2018. I work in astroparticle physics, a research area at the boundary between astrophysics, particle physics and cosmology, and in particular I am interested in the high energy universe as seen with cosmic rays, gamma rays and neutrinos. I am a member of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), of the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS) and of Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA).
