GSSI and INFN, L’Aquila (Italy)
I am currently a researcher in the Astroparticle Physics department of GSSI where I previously was a post doc with a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship.
My career developed at several institutions, I completed my PhD in October 2010 at SISSA and, before to join GSSI, I was a postdoc at NAOC in Bejing and at the Institue for Theoretical Physics of Hamburg University where I worked on topics including particle physics phenomenology, astrophysical signatures of dark matter, and physics of the Early Universe.
In the past few years I focused my interests on investigating the generation and transport of energetic cosmic-ray particles with particular emphasis on gamma-ray signatures and the feedback with the interstellar environments. To this aim, I have been developing numerical approaches to investigate the transport of cosmic rays in the Galaxy and testing my models against multi-messenger observations of nuclei, leptons, diffuse gamma-rays and neutrinos.
