Hello. Welcome to my web pages. I'm a theoretical physicist at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA/ISAS) of Trieste. I'm employed as Associate Professor in the Elementary Particle Physics Sector. I work on quantum field theory and string theory. You can read more about my research and publications on my research pages.

I came to Trieste in the Fall of 2003. Here's a brief description of the places I have been before.


I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Turin, where I got my Laurea in Physics (equivalent to a Master) in 1994. After two years spent between the Physics department of Turin Politecnico and the Theory division of CERN, in the Fall 1996 I took up a PhD place in the elementary particle physics sector of SISSA in Trieste. I received my Ph.D. in 1999.


I spent four years as a postdoc in Copenhagen, Denmark, at NORDITA, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. From 1999 to 2001 I was awarded an Italian INFN fellowship. From 2001 to 2003 I was a EU Marie Curie Research fellow. My stay in Copenhagen has been very fruitful, given also the very close collaboration between the High Energy groups of NORDITA and NBI, the Niels Bohr Institute. During my long stay in Denmark, I spent some time abroad for collaborations, in particular in the UK, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy and The Netherlands. In the Fall 2003 I came back to Italy and was employed at SISSA as Assistant Professor thanks to a fellowship from the Program Rientro dei Cervelli. I became Associate Professor at the beginning of 2008.
