Main Focus

I am currently working on the inclusion of the higher-order modes on the waveform models from the effective one body (EOB) formalism. I am also working on understanding the impact of higher-order modes in the parameter estimation of compact binary coalescence.

Here are links to my publications: from Spires, and from the ADS database.

Curriculum Vitae

I was born in Italy in 1992, in 2014 I received my bachelor's degree at "Sapienza University of Rome" focusing on mathematical physics under the supervision of Prof. Carlo Marchioro. In 2016 I earned my master's degree at "Sapienza University of Rome" under the supervision of Prof. Valeria Ferrari with a thesis on tests of General Relativity using observations from X-ray binaries. Starting from November 2016, I am a PhD student in Professor Buonanno's division at the AEI.
