Compact biography

I am a physicist and group leader working in cosmology for two ESA/NASA space satellite missions. After my PhD, I lived in Italy, Switzerland, US, Germany, where I am at present. One of the projects I coordinated, used data to test Einstein theory of General Relativity. I have also recently collaborated with a startup on IoT healthcare data analysis.

I am used to travel worldwide and enjoy knowledge transfer among people with different backgrounds. I am passionate about communication and team work; I like to organize and test new formats for conferences.

I have been acting in theatre plays in Italian and English; most of all, I like dancing swing and tango.
