Roberto CotestaPhD Student
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.
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.
