studying the Supermassive Black Holes at the center of local Galaxies
New Paper Online
Currently I am a Post-Doc Researcher at the Astronomical Observatory of Rome.
From May 2019 to April 2023 I worked at the Instituto de Estudios Astrofisicos of the Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile, as FONDECYT Post-Doc Fellow (2019-2022) and ESO-Comitee Mixto Fellow (2022-2023). During the time I spent in Chile I studied the accretion properties of supermassive black holes in Active Galactic Nuclei using broad-band X-ray spectroscopy and timing analysis.
Before moving to Santiago I worked on the X-ray polarimetry mission IXPE at the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Planetology INAF-IAPS in Rome, Italy. I got my PhD in Physics in 2018 at Roma Tre University working on the Comptonization mechanisms acting in the hot coronae of AGN.
I am part of the the Swift/BAT AGN Spectroscopic Survey (BASS) team, of the scientific working group of the hard X-ray NASA mission NuSTAR, of the science team of the new NASA polarimetry mission, IXPE and of the new ESA mission ATHENA X-Ray Observatory.
