My research focuses on developing data analysis techniques for the planned LISA mission. In particular, I work on the development and application of statistical tools that will be part of the LISA global fit.
I am also interested in studying the astrophysical properties of the variety of sources LISA will be able to detect.

Here are the links to my pubblications: from the ADS database, and from INSPIRE.


2018-2021: Bachelor's Degree in Physics at the University of Milano-Bicocca. Thesis Advisor: Prof. Bruno Giacomazzo.
2021-2023: Master's Degree in Astrophysics and Space Physics at the University of Milano-Bicocca. Thesis Advisors: Prof. Davide Gerosa, Dr. Roberto Cotesta.

For my Master's thesis project I focused on the observed correlation between the mass ratio and the effective spin of black-hole binaries, studying its potential links with hierarchical mergers in disk-like astrophysical environments.

In November 2023, I joined the Astrophysical and Cosmological Relativity department at the AEI as a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Jonathan Gair.
