Curriculum
Ho ottenuto il dottorato in Fisica presso la Sapienza – Università di Roma nel gennaio 2010, sotto la supervisione della Prof.ssa Valeria Ferrari.  In seguito sono stato postdoc nel gruppo di Relatività Numerica del Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics fino al 2013, quando ho raggiunto la Cardiff University come Research Associate.  Nel 2017 sono divenuto Research Fellow alla Cardiff University e ho infine preso servizio presso la Sapienza – Università di Roma nel luglio 2018 come Ricercatore a tempo determinato Legge 240/10 e Rita Levi Montalcini Fellow.
