Research Interests

Currently, I am a PhD student and the aim of my thesis includes contributing to the development of statistical tools such as the likelihood for galaxy clustering and weak lensing in the context of the Euclid collaboration, comparing new available data to general theoretical approaches to investigate the nature of Dark Energy and Modified Gravity and combining different probes to detect, constrain or exclude classes of models.


I graduated in July 2018 and obtained a MSc in Theoretical Physics at University of Turin, bringing as a topic of my master thesis the Spherical Collapse of fuzzy dark matter.

From April to September 2017, I had a six-month research experience as visiting student at the Max Planck Institut for Astrophysics (MPA) in Garching, where I worked on the spherical collapse of dark matter halos using ultra-light axions as alternative dark matter candidate.
