I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (Paris, France), working on the spectral modelling of galaxies to understand the way they form and evolve. Before starting this position, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at ESA-ESTEC in Nordwijk (The Netherlands), the largest facility for space research and technology of the European Space Agency.

I was born in Torino (Italy), where I graduated in Physics. I then moved to Bologna to pursue my studies in Astrophysics, and obtained a Master's degree with a thesis on the interpretation of spectro-photometric data of massive galaxies.

I then got the opportunity to move to Paris, at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, to start a PhD, which I obtained in 2013 with a study of the effect of dust attenuation and of systematic model uncertainties on the spectral interpretation of galaxies.
