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 in 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.

Stay tuned...
