Research interests: theoretical astrophysics, accretion discs dynamics, protoplanetary systems, black hole binaries, fluid and dust dynamics (and the numerical methods to describe them); radiative processes in astrophysical environments and radiative transfer Monte Carlo methods; celestial mechanics. 

Since September 2023, I am Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in theoretical astrophysics at the Università degli Studi di Milano.
After obtaining my Ph.D. in Milan in 2018, I spent 3 years as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Leicester (UK) and 2 years as a Chercheur Universitaire at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon in Lyon (France).

My research focuses on the dynamics of gas and dust surrounding binary systems, with applications to both protostellar/protoplanetary systems and merging binary black holes. My expertise is mainly theoretical and numerical (numerical hydrodynamics and Monte Carlo radiative transfer simulations), however over the years I have been involved in a number of projects with observers with whom I collaborated both helping with analysis/interpretation of the data and supporting observational proposal with hydrodynamical and radiative transfer simulations (mainly for ALMA).

I am currently the PI of the project ORBIT-D (Observing Binaries in Transition-Discs), funded by the European Union, that aims at studying kinematic and morphological signatures of hidden binaries and planets in a special class of protostellar discs called transition discs.
