Welcome to my research website.
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) in L’Aquila (Italy). My research activity concerns problems related to basic and space plasmas as well as high-energy astrophysics.
I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Physics of the University of Calabria (Italy), where I obtained my PhD in 2017, working on the description of the solar wind plasma from fluid to kinetic scales and on the analysis of collisional effects in a weakly collisional plasma.
Research topic (partial list…):
- Plasma heating and energy dissipation in turbulent weakly-collisional plasmas, such as the solar wind;
- Plasma turbulence at kinetic scales;
- Acceleration and transport of energetic particles in astrophysical environments;
- Waves and instabilities in nonneutral plasmas;
