Research Interests

During my career in Physics and Astronomy I have studied galaxy formation and evolution, with particular attention to the co-evolution of starburst and AGN in infrared galaxies. I have experience in both data reduction and modeling and I have worked on calibration and analysis of data from mid-IR to submm. I have published several scientific articles with small and large collaborations and attended international conferences contributing with talks and posters.

I have been involved in several international projects and developed a network of scientific collaborations extended from Europe to North America and New Zealand. In particular, I am a member of the two main SPIRE extragalactic programs (H-Atlas and HerMES) and of the Cosmology Legacy Survey (CLS) carried on by SCUBA-2.
