Undergraduate Studies

I did both my Bachelor and Master in Physics at the University of Milan. During my master thesis, I worked within the N3PDF collaboration under the supervision of Dr. Stefano Carrazza on a project involving high performance computing for parton distribution functions determination. During my bachelor thesis, I worked under the supervision of Prof. Giancarlo Maero on the characterization of plasma instabilities inside Penning-Malmberg traps.
