I am a theoretical Astrophyiscist working on supermassive black hole formation and evolution, dynamics of binaries and detection of gravitational waves with space based interferometers like the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) and Pulsar Timing Arrays (PTAs).
I got my PhD from Universita` dell’Insubria in 2007 and worked as a researcher at University of Birmingham, UK (2007), PennState University, PA USA (2008-2009) and the Albert Einstein Institute in Berlin, Germany (2009-2015).
In 2014 I was awarded a prestigious University Research Fellowship of the Royal Society, landing once again in Birmingham where I was appointed Senior Lecturer in 2017.
In 2018 I was awarded an ERC CoG grant, supporting the B Massive project (see link below)
Since 2019 I am associate professor at University of Milano Bicocca.
