I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Laboratory of Interdisciplinary Physics LIPh Lab at the University of Padova, Italy. My present research focuses on Statistical Physics of synthetic biodiversity, under the supervision of dr. Samir Suweis.

I got my Bachelor and Master degrees in Physics and my PhD in Physics at the University of Milan with prof. Davide E. Galli. In particular, my research during PhD concerned computer simulation of emergent properties in condensed matter, soft matter and complex systems. I addressed the fascinating issues of: 1) crystallization in supercooled liquid mixtures, 2) emergent properties of one-dimensional and two-dimensional soft matter, 3) stochastic simulation and analysis of electric resistor networks and 4) simulation of soft patchy particles binary mixtures phase behavior. The majority of these activities involved collaboration with groups of experimental physicists in Italy and in Germany.

I usually develop my own code in C++ and Python (for data analysis also with Jupyter Notebooks ); when a High Performance Computing approach is required, MPI and CUDA are my favourite choices. My main computational tools for discovery are Molecular Dynamics (expecially LAMMPS ), Monte Carlo and Machine Learning.
