I studied Mathematics at the University of Camerino, Italy. My master graduation thesis was in GR and I decided to continue my study of this branch with a Ph.D. in Relativistic Astrophysics at ICRANet at the University of Rome. There, I studied the numerical modeling of fast rotating self-gravitating NS, both in GR and Newtonian Gravity.

After that, I have been employed for a Post-Doc position in numerical simulations of BNS mergers, using the ETK software platform at the University of Trento. Here, I focused on developing a new GRMHD code in order to perform such a task, that soon will be released.

Actually, I am a PostDoc at the CCRG at RIT, involved in the TCAN project, continuing the development of the Spritz GRMHD code, testing the implementation of the tabulated EOS, and of the Neutrino Leakage scheme.
